Collaborative Screening: The Missing Piece

Presented with Gallery 72, this special screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Tim Guthrie and guests. Coincides with Gallery 72’s exhibition of Guthrie’s photography. THE MISSING PIECE is the document and product of a mammoth, globe-trotting journey launched by Omaha-based Guthrie to honor the memory of his late wife, Beth, who died unexpectedly from complications of Parkinson’s disease and dystonia in 2015. Guthrie created dozens of “Beth BBs” – small, 3D-printed spheres that contained some of his wife’s ashes – and began leaving them around the world at sites that had been significant to them. Guthrie found the process therapeutic, and expanded the practice to include destinations they had aspired to see together. A melancholy travel diary from a wholly original voice and a portrait a devastated husband trying to find a path to healing, the film is hopeful while demonstrating there are some absences that will always be felt.

While THE MISSING PIECE premiered at the 12th annual Omaha Film Festival, Film Streams and Gallery 72 are proud to present an expanded new cut. Following the film will be a discussion with Guthrie and Caitlin Mason, Program Director of Mourning Hope Grief Center, moderated by Amy Jenson, Executive Director of University of Nebraska Medical Center - UNMC's Healing Arts Program. To accompany the screening, Gallery 72 (1806 Vinton St.) will host an exhibition, Missing Piece Photographs, of the images that were the foundation of the film. The exhibition begins with a post screening reception on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 9 pm. A formal opening reception will follow on Thursday, November 9, 2017 from 5 to 9 pm. Many of Guthrie’s photographs will be available for purchase in a variety of sizes during the exhibition.
The show at Gallery 72 will remain on display through Saturday, November 25, 2017, during normal gallery hours and by appointment.
