A Story for the Modlins

Sergio Oksman

A Story for the Modlins (Sergio Oksman)
L'Alternativa Hall / Hall Focus - Session 1 / A Story for the Modlins


The Modlins’ story was strewn across the pavement like a jigsaw... Elmer and Margaret Modlin strove all their life for fame and fortune—he as a film actor, she as a painter—but recognition never came. An exploration of posterity and eternal rest.
