(May 8-Aug. 12) The Ladder of Escape
Joan Miró is one of the undisputed masters of modern art and Washingtonians get a closer look at his greatness this year with The Ladder of Escape, showing at the National Gallery of Art through mid-August. The collection of over 100 paintings, drawings, and sculptures shows the surrealist’s political side as well as his sense of Spanish identity.

(May 8-11) Short films, short shoots
Making a movie is no simple task and it’s even harder when you only have two days. All the same, The 48 Hour Film Project invites aspiring filmmakers to spend a sleepless weekend writing, shooting, editing, and scoring a short with nothing but a genre, a prop, and a line of dialogue by way of guidelines. The Washington-area submissions screen today through Friday at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring and the best of the fest screens May 24.
