Students in the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Visual Arts will present work from last semester in a video screening on Tuesday, September 24 at 4:30 p.m. in the James M. Stewart ̓32 Theater at 185 Nassau Street. Students from spring courses in introductory and intermediate digital video production will present new short videos created in spring 2013. The screening is free and open to the public.
The screening will feature videos from digital video production courses taught by Lecturer in Visual Arts Keith Sanborn and Professor in Visual Arts Su Friedrich. Sanborn’s course introduced students to the techniques of shooting and editing digital video, while Friedrich’s intermediate class focused on digital media production along with issues of writing, editing, aesthetic choice and challenging one’s audience.
Featured filmmakers from Sanborn’s introductory class include Aaron Applbaum ̓14, Pelin Asa ̓16, Colleen Bradley ̓14, Dominick Cioppa ̓15, Matthew Floyd ̓15, Brianna Leahy ̓15, Charlotte Levy ̓16, Max Lyons ̓13, and Amber Stewart ̓15.
Featured artists from Friedrich’s intermediate class include Christopher Dodds ̓13, Nicholas Ellis ̓14, Michael Glassman ̓15, Maxson Jarecki ̓16, Christina Maida ̓14, Graham Phillips ̓16, Jane Pritchard ̓15, Jeffrey Stapleton ̓14, and Don Wilson ̓15.
Sanborn, a media artist, theorist, curator and translator, began teaching at Princeton in 2002. He is a regular contributor to festivals such as OVNI (Barcelona), the Rotterdam International Film Festival and the Oberhausen Film Festival, and his work has been included in two Whitney Museum of American Art biennials. His theoretical and critical writings have appeared in contexts ranging from Artforum to Kunst nach Ground Zero to exhibition catalogues for the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the San Francisco Cinematheque.
Friedrich, who has been teaching at Princeton since 1998, has produced and directed twenty films and videos, which have won awards at festivals all over the world. Her work is widely screened in the United States, Canada, and Europe, and has been the subject of retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Rotterdam International Film Festival, among others. Her recent film, Gut Renovation, received its international premiere earlier this spring at the Berlin Film Festival. Barring one exception, Friedrich is the writer, director, cinematographer, sound recordist, and editor of all her films.
