A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

Ink & Linda, a documentary about an artistic duo, premieres this weekend with screening/exhibit/performance events throughout March.

The captivating documentary Ink & Linda about Los Angeles’ most unlikely street art duo will have its world premiere on Saturday, March 5, 2022, inside the Helms Design Center. Stuart C. Paul’s new feature-length film chronicles the unexpected friendship and collaboration between Inksap (aka Ink), a Vietnamese American urban street artist in his 20s, and Linda Lack, an elder stateswoman of the modern dance scene in her 70s. Four additional screening events will follow in the landmark Culver City building. The film will screen two weeks later on Thursday, March 24, during the opening night of Dance Camera West’s 20th annual festival at 2220 Arts & Archives (in the Bootleg’s former venue) on Beverly Boulevard.

Nightly screenings of Ink & Linda will be followed by a Q&A, an artist reception, and a live and intimate demonstration revealing Inksap and Lack’s artistic process. An exhibition of Ink’s work will also be on display.
