Želimir Žilnik Workshop


Visual Studies Workshop is pleased to announce a Master Class with filmmaker Želimir Žilnik

Wednesday, May 17, 6 pm.
$15, $5 VSW Members

This evening workshop will focus on engaged filmmaking practices in politically challenging times, guided by a renowned documentary filmmaker whose work spans several decades, technologies and political and social movements. The workshop will include an overview of Žilnik’s work, and a discussion of his unique strategies for confronting politically charged subjects while navigating censorship and utilizing scarce resources to create truly independent media. Audiences interested in a deeper, more direct engagement with the proliferation of independent media are welcome to attend.

Class size is limited, please register by May 10th.

The Dryden Theater at the George Eastman Museum will screen two of Žilnik’s latest films: Logbook_Serbistan (Tuesday, May 16, 7:30 p.m.) is a penetrating exploration of recent European migrant drama, and The Old School of Capitalism (Tuesday, May 23, 7:30 p.m.) an account of struggles under the misery-inducing effects of global capital.

Introduction by Jurij Meden, Curator of Film Exhibitions, George Eastman Museum
