The Shell Lake Arts Center’s “The Art of Film” Series will continue on Saturday, December 16th at 7:00 PM with a showing of "A Ghost Story" (2017) hosted by Justin Peck.  The film is an extraordinary mood piece about a recently deceased man who returns to the suburban home he shared with his wife as a white-sheeted ghost.  It's a ghost story, but not scary.  It's a cinematic poem about love, the passage of time, grief, existence, and the legacies we leave behind.  The film is rated R for brief language and a disturbing image.

The Fifth Annual “The Art of Film” Series continues the theme established in the last four seasons of showing critically acclaimed films from the U.S. and around the world. Films chosen demonstrate an array of techniques their makers use to create these works. The Center is delighted to have Justin Peck, UW-Madison Film Studies graduate, returning this season as host. Audience members are invited to remain after each film for a lively discussion.

Films are projected on a 9’ X 16’ screen in the Center’s cafeteria/conference room and there is plenty of seating. Audience members are also welcome to bring their own comfortable, folding chairs if they prefer. Popcorn, snacks, and beverages will be available. The Arts Center is located at 802 First Street in Shell Lake two blocks off Highway 63. The south doors that face First Street are the entry doors for the Film Series. Admission is by free will donation with a suggested donation of $7 a person.  A full list of show dates and film titles for “The Art of Film” Series is available by visiting
