March 7-14, 2010, in Boston Bay, Jamaica. This one-week intensive workshop focuses on two broad issues: exploring Jamaica’s history with film and visual culture and understanding 16mm celluloid film as a hands-on artistic medium. We will shoot black-and-white film by day, and process and print what we shoot outdoors. The workshop includes excursions, lead by local experts, in historically significant sites such as Maroon Town. Experimental filmmaker Robert Schaller will provide instruction on nontoxic processing of 16mm film. Yale University film professor Terri Francis, Ph.D. will moderate roundtables on film, visual culture, and experimental aesthetics in Jamaica and the Caribbean. Register by January 30, 2010.
