Selected by Cranbrook Art Museum curator Laura Mott to facilitate her interview with artist Scott Hocking, who is currently exhibiting at Tube Factory artspace, we will screen Close Encounters of the Third Kind then reference the interview between her and Hocking.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind is a 1977 American science fiction film, written and directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Richard Dreyfuss, François Truffaut, Melinda Dillon, Teri Garr, Bob Balaban, and Cary Guffey. It tells the story of Roy Neary, an everyday blue collar worker in Indiana, whose life changes after an encounter with an unidentified flying object (UFO).
