In Person: Filmmaker Chuck Workman

On Saturday February 22, 2014 at 8:00 pm in Dryden Theatre

Academy Award–winning filmmaker Chuck Workman will present his documentary What Is Cinema? (2013), featuring new and archival interviews with filmmakers, critics, and video artists.

About the Film
Workman's documentary tackles the question of its title through over a hundred clips and new interviews with Mike Leigh, Jonas Mekas, Yvonne Rainer, David Lynch, Bill Viola, Robert Altman, Kelly Reichardt, Costa-Gavras, Ken Jacobs, Michael Moore, J. Hoberman, and others, and with archival interviews from Robert Bresson, Alfred Hitchcock, Chantal Akerman, Akira Kurosawa, Abbas Kiarostami, and more. The film also includes commissioned sequences from experimental artists Lewis Klahr and Phil Solomon. What Is Cinema? not only asks a poignant question, but proposes where cinema will, and should, go in the future.
