Monday, February 24, 2014 at 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003
What we talk about when we talk about editing. Jonathan Oppenheim is an editor’s editor, renowned in the documentary community for his sense of clarity and context in shaping films of political and psychological complexity: Paris is Burning, Arguing the World, The Oath and Children Underground. He began his career as an associate editor on the landmark verite classic Streetwise and his credits now encompass over forty documentary features and numerous awards including a Peabody, an Oscar nomination and two Sundance Grand Jury Prizes.
For Doc Talks, Oppenheim will screen and discuss the ways in which he worked with director Ben Nabors on William and The Windmill, a film about the young Malawian inventor William Kamkwamba who builds a power-generating windmill from scrap parts, effectively rescuing his family from famine and creating a new local economy.
Please join us for this exceptional opportunity to discuss the art and language of editing with one of the most respected artists in the field.
Presented by the School of Media Studies.
