THE VIDEO ESSAY: PRESENTATION AND SCREENING BY RICHARD MISEK

 
Alongside the familiar scholarly article, the video essay has become a key alternative mode of analysing films and theorizing about cinema. It has also proved to be a precious pedagogical tool.
Film-maker, montagist, and theorist Richard Mizek has curated a series for a special issue of (In) Transition: Journal of Videographic Film and Moving Image Study, an international, peer-reviewed online journal that focuses on the video essay form. He will give a brief presentation and Q&A on the video essay, before screening a sample of the videos included in the forthcoming special issue.
Drinks and snacks will be served.
