London-born filmmaker and visual artist Isaac Julien
has been developing a unique cinematic language since his debut feature film, Young Soul Rebels, screened at Cannes Film Festival in 1991. His work is often presented as video art installations, such as his 2003 short “Baltimore” and his 2007 multiscreen work Western Union: Small Boats, both of which are shown with Julien on hand in Napa Valley this week. The event includes reception, dinner and conversation between Julien and Aebhric Coleman, curator of the renowned Kramlich Collection of multimedia art, on Friday, Dec. 1, at Cameo Cinema, 1340 Main St., St. Helena. 5:45pm. $75–$150. 707.963.9779.
