Nathaniel Dorsky

Lecturer in Visual Arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts

One of the most celebrated avant-garde filmmakers, as well as a famous "film doctor" for rescuing films in need of radical revision, will give a workshop-seminar in filmmaking and editing in which the class will collectively produce a Renga film. Renga is a form of Japanese linked poetry, the rules of which allow for a collaborative poem to be written amongst four poets. Poet Basho created a guideline for the 36 stanzas of a Renga Poem, and more importantly for this class, discussed the nature of effective or ineffective poetic linkages between Renga participants. Students will each shoot their own images and together build a cinematic Renga.
