I Am a Town. 2019. USA. Directed by Mischa Richter. World premiere. Courtesy Mischa Richter. 83 min.
Artist Mischa Richter (whose photograph of Amy Winehouse graced the cover of her album Back to Black before making its way into London’s National Portrait Gallery) debuts his first documentary feature at MoMA, a poetic meditation on his native Provincetown, Massachusetts—the free-spirited community his artist family has called home for nearly 100 years—through conversations with its resilient and at times eccentric inhabitants, from pilgrims and fishermen to drag queens and spirit guides.
