When: Sun., Jan. 17 2016

Considered the father of the documentary film, director Robert J. Flaherty made a number of significant films before he passed away in 1951. With Return of the Naive, a special program featuring four features and four short films, the Cleveland Museum of Art provides a retrospective of his work. Today at 1:30 p.m., it screens the 1922 silent film Nanook of the North. A documentary about an Inuit family living in the Arctic Circle, it blends ethnography and poetry. Tickets are $10. (Niesel)
