Based on true events, Augustine tells the tale of the titular kitchen servant who is brought to an asylum after suffering a strange seizure that leaves her paralyzed on one side. I got to sit down with director Alice Winocour to discuss this richly realized and slyly subversive debut.

A key player in Los Angeles' Urban Art movement, Augustine Kofie has a remarkable eye for detail -- always layering, constructing and deconstructing his landscape. I asked curator Justin Giarla a few questions about Kofie's newest show.
