Subject: Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, highlights at MoMA

 For Immediate Release
June 2001


THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART PRESENTS
A SELECTION OF NEW MEDIA WORKS FROM THE
47th ROBERT FLAHERTY FILM SEMINAR

Annual Leo Dratfield Fellowship Lecture to Feature Heddy Honigmann

Framed by Culture: Selections from the Robert Flaherty
Film Seminar
June 23-24, 2001
The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 1

The Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, a leading forum for the thoughtful review and discussion of independent nonfiction film as well as experimental, fiction, and new media works, was founded in 1954 to honor Robert Flaherty, one of the first feature documentary filmmakers. The seminar offers an intimate exchange between the participants that encourages close examination of both old and new work.  From June 23-24, 2001, in the Roy and Niuta Titus 1 Theater, The Museum of Modern Art presents three programs of independent films and videos by international artists.
A special annual event at MoMA is the Leo Dratfield Fellowship Lecture, this year featuring Dutch filmmaker Heddy Honigmann. She will screen selections from her filmography and discuss her work in a conversation with Pat Aufderheide, the prolific cultural journalist and policy analyst. Other featured guests are innovative Canadian video artist Richard Fung and distinguished Swedish documentary film- and videomaker Stefan Jarl, whose work will be introduced by the Swedish critic and teacher Carl Henrik Svenstedt.
The presentations for the program are selected from this year's Flaherty Seminar, which was programmed by Elaine Charnov, Director of the Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The seminar, which is organized annually by International Film Seminars, takes place this year at C. W. Post Campus, Long Island University, in Brookville, New York, the week preceding the MoMA screenings. The forty-seventh Flaherty Seminar features national and international cinema and mixes historical and seldom-seen works with productions just out of the editing room. Through the use of still photography, animation, and docu-fiction, the works in this year's seminar go beyond the traditional limits of documentary cinema and highlight the form's elasticity.
Framed by Culture was organized by Jytte Jensen, Associate Curator, Department of Film and Video, in collaboration with Elaine Charnov, and L. Somi Roy, Executive Director of International Film Seminars. The program is supported by The Consulate General of The Netherlands.
