Sacred Heart Greenwich alumna Lucy Adams ‘12 has launched her career in New York City screening her documentary “Lorrie Goulet: Spirit into Stone” at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) on October 29 and at DOC NYC in Cinépolis Chelsea on November 13.
This documentary was funded by a prestigious Made in NY grant award.
“Lorrie Goulet: Spirit into Stone” directed by Ms. Adams is a documentary film showcasing an observational portrait of a 94-year-old sculptor, according to docnyc.net.
After graduating from Kenyon College with a focus in Film and English, Ms. Adams was inspired by Lorrie Goulet, an American sculptor.
“I met Lorrie Goulet a little over a year ago, and as soon as I got to talk to her and learn about her work (she is a sculptor) I knew that I wanted to make a film about her,” Ms. Adams said. “She was 93 years old at the time, and I was so inspired by her fearlessness. She never stopped working despite being in her husband’s shadow throughout her career, and has stayed true to her values by maintaining honesty in her art practice and passing on her knowledge as a teacher.”
Focusing on the representation of women in the art field, Ms. Adams hopes that her film will inspire others.
Ms. Adams said, “I hope that highlighting Lorrie’s story helps bring to light other women who have been excluded from the history of modern art — so that we can stop talking about women artists as “unique” and “exceptional” and realize that there are and have always been talented women making amazing work despite being excluded from a male dominated art world.”
Ms. Adams studied filmmaking for four years at Sacred Heart Greenwich. In addition to studying at Kenyon College, she spent a semester at FAMU, a film school in Prague.
