Internationally known filmmakers will come to the Bloomington campus as part of the Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker series. Jim Jarmusch, an enigmatic artist who drew inspiration from the East Village of the late 1970s, kicks off the series on Friday, Jan. 31.

Originally set on being a poet, Jarmusch dabbled in multiple art forms, including music and eventually film. His 15 feature films — nine of which will be screened as part of the series, including “Dead Man” with Johnny Depp and “Paterson” with Adam Driver — create an oeuvre with distinct characteristics and style, and a focus on the beauty and mystery of life’s little details.
