Local filmmaker screening work on Folk Art collector

Pete Cecere's art collection is the subject of Matthew White's documentary, screening tomorrow night at the George Eastman Museum.

A local filmmaker is set to host a screening of his new documentary tomorrow night at the George Eastman Museum.

Matthew White's film is about Pete Cecere, who's collected folk and outsider arts from across the Americas for more than 50 years, gathering more than 5,000 pieces that he stores right at his home in Virginia.

The screening is happening tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. inside the Dryden Theatre. It will feature live folk music from the film's composer and a Q&A with the director and scoring musician.

White joined us this morning to explain what viewers can expect and how an inside joke led to the title of the film.
