$9 suggested donation
We will be showing rarely seen work by John Marshall, Miriam Weinstein, Alfred Guzzetti, Robb Moss, and Stephanie Spray.
For several years Scott MacDonald has been working on a pair of projects relating to documentary filmmaking in Cambridge, Massachusetts: The Cambridge Turn, a critical history of the development of ethnographic film and of personal documentary in Cambridge and A Critical Cinema 6, interviews with filmmakers who have taught and made films in Cambridge and/or have studied filmmaking there. During this process MacDonald has discovered or re-discovered a good many accomplished, but under-appreciated films and videos. MacDonald will be with us to present a 90-minute program of this work.
