Character Descriptions is Josh Greene's latest project involving his family. For this particular work he asked his mother, father, wife, older sister, younger sister and younger brother to each write a detailed description of themselves for the purpose of casting actors to play each of them in a video.

Artist's talks begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Hallwalls Cinema.
