Columbia University alumna Katharina Otto-Bernstein is donating $5 million toward a state-of-the-art screening room at the school’s new Lenfest Center for the Arts. The room will be named the Katharina Otto-Bernstein Screening Room, according to The New York Times. Otto-Bernstein directed the documentaries “Absolute Wilson” and “Beautopia.”
The center, designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop, will also house the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery. The building is still under construction, with a scheduled completion date of 2016.
