Communicating Public History: Filmmaking and Public Display

Bright Family Screening Room
Sponsored by Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies
So often, filmmaking is considered a "technical" craft -- the sum of a series of directing, editing and cinematography decisions. Yet non-filmmakers rarely discuss a movie's technical qualities. What they respond to, and remember, is the story it tells. Alison Guss will also discuss the idea of public history - or the intersection of historical understanding, filmmaking, and public display - through a series of films she has recently created for the Smithsonian's National Museum of African-American History and Culture about the Emancipation Proclamation and the 1963 March on Washington. Clips from other works will also be shown to explore this theme, such as a recent episode of the PBS series "The American Experience" and a multi-part series on immigration for the Ellis Island National Monument.
This even is sponsored by the Honors Program and is free and open to the public.
