Master Classes at FLEFF
During the master classes, you can expect an afternoon full of discussion. “The guests will be doing shot-by-shot analysis of their work, describe their research or artistic process and challenges, talk about their careers, and probe how disruptions are essential to their work.”
Philip Mallory Jones, film/video/new media/gaming/ VR artist
Philip Mallory Jones’ work creates experiences “using digital 3D modeling and video game technologies, virtual and augmented reality, theatrical projection, and creating books.” In Jones’ latest work, Bronzeville Etudes and Riffs (2018), Jones’ goal is to promote the visions of the artists during the Chicago Renaissance, as they inspired artists in many generations across all fields. As one of the first guests that I heard about back in February, I am very excited for this close discussion of Jones’ work in the Master Classes.
Staring at the Sun with Harry Greenberger and Sara Corrigan
Harry Greenberger is an Ithaca College Alumni writer and director of staring at the sun. Sara Corrigan is also an Ithaca College alumni and editor of Staring at the Sun.
Staring at the sun is about “Two teenage Brooklyn Hasidic schoolgirls, unable to live under the strict rules of their community take the family car and run away across America to find what they assume will be the life of total freedom that lies beyond their insular world. They discover that a world where they don't understand the game is more dangerous than a world with too many rules, and they try to make their way in a new context, under new identities, and within an entirely new lifestyle.”
