In conjunction with Tacita Dean's new film JG, on view at Arcadia University Art Gallery (February 7 – April 21), a new film project funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. Point Blank dir. John Boorman, USA, 1967, 35mm, color, 92 min. Double-crossed and out for revenge, Lee Marvin plays Walker, an unstoppable gangster on a mission. Three Favorite Films of J.G. Ballard chosen by Claire Walsh and presented by Tacita Dean In response to an invitation by International House's program curator Jesse Pires to put JG into a cinematic context, Dean asked if J.G. Ballard's long-time partner, Claire Walsh could make a list of the author's favorite films.

Ballard (1930-2009) earned a cult following during his lifetime for fiction distinguished by its "dystopian modernity, bleak man-made landscapes, and the psychological effects of technological, social, or environmental developments."
