Begins Friday March 11th, 7pm in Muenzinger Auditorium on the CU Boulder campus. All other events take place in the Visual Arts Complex auditorium, room 1B20, on the CU Boulder campus.
The Brakhage Center Symposium, already a tradition in the not very traditional world of avant-garde filmmaking, will again be hosted this year by the University of Colorado at Boulder. In a weekend dedicated to the exploration of new ideas in cinema art, guest curators Sally Berger, Scott MacDonald, and Bill Nichols will explore expanded notions of documentary and ethnography.
Presenters will include James Benning, Nao Bustamente, Alfred Guzzetti, Abraham Ravett, and Lucien Taylor. The symposium will feature the Regional Premiere of SWEETGRASS (2010) by Lucien Talyor and Ilisa Barbash, presented in 35mm on opening day.
SWEETGRASS follows the last modern-day cowboys to lead their flocks of sheep up into Montana’s breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains for summer pasture.
