DocuClub is proud to co-present a session of the Women Make Movies Master Class filmmaking series featuring award-winning documentary filmmaker Kim Longinotto (Rough Aunties; Hold MeTight, Let me Go; Sisters in Law).
This Master Class is part of several May weekend events and talks for Longinotto?s film retrospective at MoMA, May 7-23. For a full retrospective schedule visit MoMA at www.moma.org
Longinotto is renowned as a purveyor of cinéma vérité and lauded by critics for her sensitive treatment of groundbreaking subject matter, and rarely seen perspectives from around the globe. She will share clips, documentary techniques, working experiences, as well as craft and process from her 30+ year career as a documentarian. She will talk about the difficulties of filming in foreign countries and cultures, about the ethics of documentary filmmaking, and her relationship to her subjects.
Longinotto's newest film, Rough Aunties, an inspirational film about women-led social change in post-apartheid South Africa, won the Sundance World Cinema Jury Prize in Documentary this year and will be broadcast on HBO in 2010. Another of her films, Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go, will screen on POV in July. Don't miss this special event with one of documentary film's most unique and accomplished voices!
Debra Zimmerman, Executive Director of Women Make Movies, will moderate the event.
