Golub: Late Works Are the Catastrophes (88 mins.) is the final chapter in Kartemquin Films' chronicle of the life and times of American artist Leon Golub. It explores how the painter's images of torture, war, and brutality are increasingly relevant in our post-9/11 world. Like the first Golub film, the documentary demonstrates the ways in which the painter's works both emerge from, and "report" on, the world. The other two films included in this collection focus on Golub's wife and studio partner of 50 years, the prominent feminist and anti-war artist Nancy Spero. They include Woman As Protagonist: The Art of Nancy Spero (45 mins.) and Nancy Spero in the NYC Subway (11 mins.). "Virtually perfect" (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader).
