DATE: Tuesday, April 22; TIME: 5:00PM - 7:00PM; SPRING 2014

Instructor: Marco Williams
Fee: $20. $10 for Scribe members

Marco Williams has used the documentary as a way of understanding and addressing the extraordinary traumas that we face in this country due to race, ethnicity, gender and class. His film subjects (In Search of Our Fathers, Two Towns of Jasper, Banished!!) have been inspired by painful social and historical disjunctures. Williams’ documentary examinations create a salve of understanding in uncovering difficult histories.

Drawing from his own work, Williams will explore the healing power of the documentary, the possibility that this art form can bring understanding and ultimately correction of past wrongs. Marco Williams will also look at the larger role of the documentary in empowering audiences to action.
