Guest artists Zoe Beloff and Jennifer McCoy present recent video works that center on questions of home, real estate, and architectures of surveillance. Sound and music function as active forces in each of these projects, sounding out space, invoking contesting histories, and channeling precariously embodied voices. The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 7, in the James M. Stewart ’32 Theater at 185 Nassau Street. A Q&A session with the artists follows the screening. Free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations necessary.

Sonic Cinema: Sounding Resistance is a public film screening series curated by Visiting Associate Professor Amy Herzog in conjunction with her spring visual arts/music course “Sonic Cinema: Music, Noise, and the Moving Image.” The course explores the use of sound in relation to moving images, including film scoring, musicals, soundtracks, music videos, and experimental sound and video art.
The film screening series is supported through the John Sacret Young ’69 Lecture Series fund. Sacret Young is a 1969 graduate of Princeton and an author, producer, director, and screenwriter. He has been nominated for seven Emmy Awards and seven Writers Guild of America (WGA) Awards, winning two WGA Awards. He is perhaps best known for co-creating, along with William F. Broyles Jr., China Beach, the critically acclaimed ABC-TV drama series about medics and nurses during the Vietnam War, and for his work on the television drama The West Wing. Young has also received a Golden Globe and a Peabody Award, and his original mini-series about the Gulf War, Thanks of a Grateful Nation, was honored with his fifth Humanitas Prize nomination.
