  • Communicating Public History: Filmmaking and Public Display

     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.

    Games
    by George Houston Bass, Jr.
    Directed by Benny Sato Ambush

    This short, powerful play looks at the damage caused by bullying on both the victim and those who perpetrate the crime, told in rhythms inspired by bebop jazz.
