The Docs In Progress salon series brings together filmmakers and documentary film aficionados to discuss and debate great issues in documentary cinema. Tonight's salon will focus on how documentaries reflect nostalgia and points of view about cities, towns, and other places. Bring a date or come to meet others with similar interests.
6:30 pm: Mix and Mingle with wine and light snacks
7:00-9:00 pm: Salon
Providing clips and provocative conversation-starters for the salon will be Joshua Glick. A Ph.D. candidate at Yale University in the departments of Film Studies and American Studies, Josh's research and teaching interests are focused on documentary media, urban cultural history, and Hollywood as an evolving mode of industrial and artistic production. In addition to collaborating with Docs in Progress, Josh works as a consultant for the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, helping them plan the exhibition Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, 1861-2008. He is currently completing his dissertation Los Angeles Documentary and the Production of Public History, 1958-1977.
This event is being presented as part of the Community Stories Festival, five days of events focused on building community through documentary. Directions to Docs In Progress can be found here.
