FILM | 'House of Stronzo' 

Rochester-based filmmaker Matt White's new documentary, "House of Stronzo," tells the story of Pete Cecere, a devout collector of folk and outsider art from the Americas. Cerere has spent more than 50 years amassing more than 5,000 pieces of art, all of which he stores in his home, dubbed "House of Stronzo." The fate of the collection has become a concern of the aging Cecere, and the San Antonio Museum of Art plans to mount an exhibition to honor his work as a collector. The film's Rochester premiere takes place this week, accompanied by live folk music played by the film's composer. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with both the director and the scoring musician on the film.

"House of Stronzo" will be screened on Friday, November 9, at Eastman Museum's Dryden Theatre, 900 East Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $5-$10. 327-4800;
