The Metropolitan Museum of Art presents the New York Premiere of “Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait” on Friday, March 17, 2017 at 7 p.m. in The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium.

Composer/singer/violinist Jenny Scheinman and filmmaker Finn Taylor have shaped Waters's shorts into a truly "moving" portrait.
