Patricia Zimmermann, professor of screen studies and codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, published an essay, “Frances Flaherty and Non Preconception" for the 2013 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar 2013 Catalog, History is What’s Happening.
The essay also analyzes the larger context of the development of independent film and art cinema in the 1950s to situate the emergence of the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, founded by Frances Flaherty. The essay is an excerpted from a forthcoming book co-authored by Zimmermann and Scott MacDonald, The Flaherty: Sixty Years in the Cause of Independent Cinema.
