F.I.L.M. Series: Sharon Lockhart presents Rudzienko
Photographer and filmmaker Sharon Lockhart will visit the F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series on Wednesday, Nov. 20. She will present an artist’s talk and her most recent film, Rudzienko (2016, 54 minutes), at 4:15 p.m. in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ. The screening is free and open to the public.
In recent years, Lockhart has been working in Poland, doing a kind of cine- and photo-archaeology of everyday life.
In collaboration with the residents of the Youth Center for Sociotherapy in Rudzienko, Poland, Lockhart conceived of a series of workshops to empower young women. She worked with a group to develop dialog and enacted movements based on their collective activities. The resulting film, “Rudzienko,” was shot over a period of two years. It proposes an innovative approach to the relationship between image and language.
Lockhart’s feature landscape film, Double Tide (2009), will be shown earlier in the day as part of Professor of Art History Scott MacDonald’s Avant-Garde cinema class. The screening will take place at 1 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, and is free and open to the public.
Sunday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m.: Dominic Gagnon presents “Going South” (2018).
