Yesterday I had a wonderful time in Matthias Müller’s seminar at the Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln, in Cologne, Germany, where I was invited to show my films and teach a class as part of a film series on “first-person cinema.”
I started making photographs again! Here’s one from Chiapas; I’m counting the days (7!) till I go back!
since my last update i’ve started being the professor of media arts at Antioch College (hence the 6-month interval)!
also, i showed my five movies at ATA in San Francisco, and gave a talk for a Lucha Libre panel at the American Anthropological Association: my essay was called Globalizing Masculinity: post-NAFTA wrestling and the televisual traffic of gender across the US / Mexico border.
I also taught another video workshop for the brilliant young women at Casa de la Mujer in Oaxaca, then returned to present our work at the encuentro de cine etnográfico!
Flexing Muscles has shown at the Film Streams Local Filmmakers’ Showcase (curated by The Faint!), Festival Internacional de Curtas Metragens de São Paulo, Traces de Vies, Indie Memphis, Strange Beauty, and Stuttgart Filmwinter. It will soon show at Big Sky and at Videonale!
