NYC Premiere of Oiltowns, a film by Mark Street ?>

NYC Premiere of Oiltowns, a film by Mark Street

Join Prof. Mark Street for the NYC Premiere of Oiltowns on Tuesday, May 9 at 9pm at Cinema Village as part of the Worker’s Unite Film Festival where it will screen with the film The Coal Minority.

Oiltowns (41 minutes, 2017)
Tuesday, May 9 at 9pm
Cinema Village
22 East 12th Street

Tickets available here for $8-10 or can be purchased at the door

About the Film:
In 2011, I started hearing about the oilfields of North Dakota; a place where itinerant workers lived in mancamps, local residents were being priced out of their homes and oil flares lit up the sky.

I went there to film over the course of four years, and then created an impressionistic portrait of this place by interviewing workers, long time residents, and a Native American who talks about the environmental impact. I also recorded the astounding and awful intrusions of oil machinery on the landscape.  Here is the trailer:

Todd Berliner: Bursting into Song in the Hollywood Musical

Fordham Filmmaking Club presents

Visiting Scholar Todd Berliner

“Bursting into Song in the Hollywood Musical”

When the characters in La La Land spontaneously sing, the film recalls the studio era, when characters in musicals regularly burst into song without realistic motivation. Illustrated with clips from musicals, this presentation will examine the ways in which Hollywood filmmakers have developed this convention.

Thursday March 9
SL 24L
11:30 FCLC

Todd Berliner, Professor of Film Studies at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is the author of Hollywood Aesthetic: Pleasure in American Cinema (Oxford University Press, 2017)
