03/22/2021

This essay explores the impacts Italian Giallo films had on the first American slasher films. While the genre’s popularity has waxed and waned over time, it has continued to evolve and has consistently been present in one form or another. Joe Cockrell of the University of North Caroina Wilimington explores how the slasher film has adopted several of its key tropes from giallo, including the “killer” character, highly elaborate death scenes, and a connection between s*x and violence.

This highly anticipated presentation will take place in Conference Block 2a on Friday March 26 at 4:00pm and in Conference Block 2b on Sunday March 28 at 1:00pm. You don’t want to miss this presentation! Click http://www.visionsffc.org/attend to purchase your all access badge

In this essay, Carl Alexander Swan of the Universty of North Carolina Wilmington, focuses on the historical, social, and political underpinnings of q***r Turkish cinema and how the concepts of visibility, tolerance and resistance have evolved over time using the 2011 “Zenne Dancer” as a case study.

03/21/2021

This study builds upon historical musicology and recent film music studies to argue that the disparity between John Williams’s popular reception and the reception from music critics and scholars may be due to the biases of the nineteenth-century Romanticism. Jessica Stookey of the University of North Carolina Greensboro explores how these biases outline the nature of the composer, the scores, and the relationship between classical music and pop culture.

03/20/2021

What is authenticity in documentary filmmaking? In this essay, Mackenzie Baradic of Northern Arizona University explores the lasting impacts of Stanislavski’s naturalistic acting styles of the 1920’s. This paper demonstrates how subtext can occur naturally in documentary, unlike in fiction. While the way most documentaries capture realism has changed over time, naturalistic acting on screen is still rooted in Stanislavskian theatre.

This presentation about authenticity in documentary filmmaking will take place in Conference Block 2a on Friday March 26 at 4:00pm and in Conference Block 2b on Sunday March 28 at 1:00pm.

03/20/2021

This historical analysis of the Paradise Theater aims to show how the theater impacted the lives of the African American population in Detroit during the 40s/50s socially, politically and culturally. In this paper, Drew Meinecke of The University of Michigan Ann Arbor discusses the theater’s programming, specifically its all African American stage show policy, and it’s role as a space specifically meant for and attended by Black people.

This presentation about lesser known history will take place in Conference Block 2a on Friday March 26 at 4:00pm and in Conference Block 2b on Sunday March 28 at 1:00pm. You don’t want to miss this presentation! Click http://www.visionsffc.org/attend to purchase your all access badge

Congratulations to Rutgers Filmmaking Center student Charles de Agustin, who was accepted into several festivals for his films “Free Samples,” “Buscando,” and media installation “Distance.” These works will be screened at Visions Film Festival & Conference, Big Muddy Film Festival, and the Windows of Understanding group exhibition, all early next year. 🔥 Honors College - Rutgers University, New Brunswick Rutgers University—New Brunswick #wou
I find it really refreshing that this festival appeals to not only people that have worked in the industry already but also people that are up and coming who are trying to test the waters of their filmmaking abilities. I recently saw an indie film made by a new director, Yedidya Gorsetman. The film is Empathy Inc. it’s a psychological thriller about a business that sells virtual reality experiences and shows what can go wrong when the businesses truth is revealed. When one of the clients finds out this truth he decides to take things into his own hands; this film does an excellent job at showing how far people will go to protect the ones they love and to fix their mistakes. Each character crosses their own lines of right and wrong in this new breed of horror. If you’re interested in checking out Empathy Inc. you can watch the trailer on YouTube and it’s available to stream on VOD.
A class project turned into something more for Alex Mancuso ’19, Hannah Garfield ’19 and Jared Mayerson ’20, who screened their film “Knock Knock” at last week’s Visions Film Festival & Conference.
