Colgate/Flaherty Global Filmmaker in Residence / October 18-21
Sandra Kogut joined Flaherty NYC curators Genevieve Yue and Chris Stults for a wide-ranging conversation about her work, documentary film, and the state of contemporary cinema. A Brazilian filmmaker, Kogut’s work reflects the complexities of global migration and urbanization. She also challenges the notion of a global filmmaker by straddling many divides moving regularly between Europe, the US and Latin America and creating work that combines documentary and fiction forms, art and cinema contexts, and intertwines historical and ocontemporary conditions. Her works have been screened at the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum, the Harvard Film Archive and the Forum des Images (Paris), among other venues.
