Patricia Zimmermann, professor of screen studies and codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, was invited to Chattanooga, Tennesee by the Association of Visual Arts (AVA), one of the oldest arts organizations in the region, to present a variety of lectures, school visits, and presentations.
Patricia Zimmermann, Professor of Screen Studies and Codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, presented two papers on documentary theory at the Visible Evidence Conference on Documentary at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.
In a paper titled 'An Ecosophy for Bioregionalism: Anti-Paranoia and Eco-Terrorism in Night Moves,' he discussed director Kelly Reichardt's filmic emphasis on environments in relation to Félix Guattari's Three Ecologies and the potential of a cinematic framework for bioregionalism. In particular, he argued that her 2013 film, Night Moves, provides an ideal model for examining the production of political subjectivity through an eco-logic that incorporates individual psychologies, social formations, and their surrounding habitats.
