A Bread Factory Part Two: Walk With Me a While
Institute of Contemporary Arts
July 2022
A Bread Factory Part Two: Walk with Me a While, dir. Patrick Wang, USA 2018, 120 min., English


Focused on the struggles of a modest arts centre to survive in small-town America, the second part of Patrick Wang’s subtle, compelling drama brings matters to a head with an unpredictable mix of comedy and tragedy. Reuniting much of the cast from part one (Tyne Daly, Elisabeth Henry, James Marsters and others), it’s a telling vision of globalisation but with a powerfully local focus.

As the film opens in the unassuming small town of Checkford (the film was part-inspired by and shot in Hudson, New York), Dorothea (Daly) and Greta (Henry) are struggling to keep their long standing arts centre alive. As they fight to keep their funding, they must simultaneously prepare and rehearse their new production of Euripides’ Hecuba – but with the town changing rapidly (and in some cases absurdly) before their eyes, will there be anyone interested in seeing it?

A Bread Factory Part One: For the Sake of Gold plays at the ICA on Saturday 19 February.
