Experimental and Documentary Cinema is a new, annual film series to be presented as part of Duke’s Screen/Society at the Rubinstein Art Center.
The purpose of this film series is to expand discourses of “experimental” and “documentary” in cinema. Each fall semester, a guest curator or a curatorial team will be chosen to design a 5-part program that highlights films that lie at the interstice of these two terms. This inaugural year, the guest curators are Chi-hui Yang of the Ford Foundation and Jon-Sesrie Goff of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. Their program, “The Visible Spectrum,” will run from September 4 through October 2, 2018 in the Rubenstein Arts Center Film Theater at Duke University.
