Two Films by Deborah Stratman
- Friday, March 30, 2012 6:30 p.m.
Deborah Stratman is one of the leading figures in the ongoing rejuvenation of the documentary by experimental filmmakers. Her work is often concerned with relationships between people, the land, and historical narratives. O’er the Land engages with key questions of American identity, interrogating the relationships between freedom, patriotism, and technologies across American history. …These Blazeing Starrs! is a film about comets, drawing a direct line from mystical conceptions of these heavenly bodies centuries ago to our contemporary scientific understandings, which may be just as magical.
O’er the Land (2009, 51 minutes)
