Thumbnail for Film Historian and Theorist Michael B. Gillespie a Visiting Associate Professor in Visual Arts Program this Fall

Film historian and theorist Michael B. Gillespie will join Princeton University’s Program in Visual Arts faculty as a visiting associate professor in the fall, along with filmmakers Afia Serena Nathaniel, Lynne Sachs and Yaara Sumeruk, as Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts continues to expand its courses and programming in filmmaking and film studies. The Center will also co-present a special film series with Princeton Garden Theatre, "Cinema Today," which will feature screenings and talks by some of the most intriguing film directors working today.

Lecturer in Theater and 2014-16 Princeton Arts Fellow Aaron Landsman has received a grant from the Graham Foundation for his recent project, Perfect City, which investigates the way cities like New York, London and Sao Paolo (among others) harness seemingly progressive values to create citadels for the rich.

Princeton University’s current Arts Fellows will gather together for “Princeton Arts Fellows Present…,” a joint showing of new and developing work by these four innovative and diverse artists, in the Marie and Edward Matthews ’53 Acting Studio and James M. Stewart ’32 Theater at 185 Nassau Street on April 25 at 7:00 p.m. This event, which will feature performances, a reading, screening and presentations by playwright and theater artist Aaron Landsman, fiction writer Hanna Pylväinen, filmmaker Pacho Velez and choreographer Pavel Zuštiak, is free and open to the public.

Audiences are invited to join Princeton University students to screen recent independent films and meet the filmmakers as part of the Visual Arts Program course “World on a Wire: 12 Films, 12 Filmmakers.” Films to be screened include Life, Animated by Roger Ross Williams on April 7; Roundabout in My Head by Hassen Ferhani on April 14; Cameraperson by Kirsten Johnson on April 21; and The Illinois Parables by Deborah Stratman on April 28. Each screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the film’s director. The screenings, which began in February, take place every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the James M. Stewart ’32 Theater at 185 Nassau Street and are free and open to the public.

Audiences are invited to join Princeton University students to screen recent independent films and meet the filmmakers as part of the Visual Arts Program course “World on a Wire: 12 Films, 12 Filmmakers.” One or two films are being screened each Thursday evening continuing through the end of April. All the films have been produced within the last 18 months and each of the filmmakers will be on hand to discuss their work and answer questions from the audience.
