The captivating documentary “Ink & Linda” about Los Angeles’ most unlikely street art duo had its world premiere on Saturday, March 5, 2022 inside the Helms Design Center, and continues at this venue through March 13, 2022. Stuart C. Paul’s new feature-length film chronicles the unexpected friendship and collaboration between Inksap (aka Ink), a Vietnamese American urban street artist in his 20s, and Linda Lack, an elder stateswoman of the modern dance scene in her 70s. Four additional screening events will follow in the landmark Culver City building.
The film will screen two weeks later on Thursday, March 24, 2022, during the opening night of Dance Camera West’s 20th annual festival at 2220 Arts & Archives (in The Bootleg’s former venue) on Beverly Boulevard. For more information, please visit https://inkandlinda.com/
