This year I have been struck by the visual oddness of the COVID-19 crisis. This pandemic is forcing us to reimagine things we used to take for granted like going to the movies. IU Cinema got creative and used the university’s empty football stadium to screen Giuseppe Tornatore’s 1988 masterpiece, “Cinema Paradiso.” The screening was also the final public event for IU Cinema’s founding director Jon Vickers. It’s been a great pleasure for me to work with Jon over the years photographing IU Cinema’s various events. The event was a fitting send-off and a rare opportunity for members of the IU community to gather amidst the pandemic.
