Award-winning filmmaker Lynne Sachs will visit Antioch College April 22 & 23. A 2014 recipient of the Guggenheim fellowship, Lynne Sachs has made boundary-crossing, genre-defying films for over twenty-five years. Blending observation and montage, performance and poetics, Sachs' work challenges the conventions of documentary, of storytelling, and of remembrance.
On Tuesday April 22, at 6:30pm, Lynne Sachs will show several short films in the context of a master class, as she discusses evolutions in her filmmaking practice and varied approaches to nonfiction storytelling.
On Wednesday April 23, at 4:30pm, Sachs will present other films and audio works as she deconstructs her unconventional approach to sound in documentary.
Immediately following this sound-specific master class, at 6:00pm, Sachs' feature-length film Your Day is My Night will screen, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.
All events are open to the public, and will be held in McGregor Hall room 113, Antioch College.
