Patricia Zimmermann, professor of screen studies and codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF), delivered invited lectures and conducted workshops on documentary new media forms in Guangzhou, China, in December of 2012. She was posted to China as part of the American Film Showcase, a US State Department initiative to foster cultural exchange and understanding.
On December 5, she presented a formal lecture entitled “Open Space Documentary” for PhD students and faculty at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in Guangzhou, China. This talk focused on how US-based new media practices migrate between the analog, digital, and embodied as a way to expand and engage critical dialogues within a place-based strategy that opens up unexplored political, social, and historical terrains. Zimmermann also engaged in a faculty and PhD student open session to share ideas about FLEFF, new media, and emerging forms of documentary beyond big budget, feature length forms.
