The Integrated Media Arts MFA Program at Hunter College Presents:
The Art the Anti-Doc or Post-Realist Nonfiction Film
A Seminar and Screening Series with filmmaker Jill Godmilow
Dates: Mon-Fri November 18 to 22
Seminar 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM
This seminar will focus on the nature of what Jill calls the Anti-Doc – films that refuse the traditional documentary’s production of realism and its ideological implications. Twelve students will join Jill for a rigorous discussion of a collection of anti-doc films from all over the world that use a variety of strategies to produce useful experience – not by fashioning images of the world into satisfying form for a unified spectator, but by scattering our presumed collectivity into self-consciousness. There will be required readings in the form of a small printed course packet that should be purchased and read by all participating.
