DocuClub in December!

Our December DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, December 8, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette Street (at Walker; take N/R/Q/6 trains to Canal).

We will screen a rough cut of (A)SEXUAL by Angela Tucker. The documentary follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In 2000, David Jay came out to his parents. He was asexual and was fine with it. And he was not alone. Studies show that 1% of the population is asexual. But in a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, verite footage, and animation with fearless humor and pop culture imagery, David and our four other characters grapple with this universal question and the outcomes might surprise you.

A Brooklyn based filmmaker and writer, Director Angela Tucker was the Director of Production at Big Mouth Films, a social issue documentary production company that is a project of Arts Engine, Inc. There, she produced PUSHING THE ELEPHANT (IDFA, Independent Lens), the Emmy-nominated documentary, DEADLINE (NBC), ELECTION DAY (PBS’ POV) and BEYOND THE STEPS: ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER (Great Performances). She directed two pieces for The National Black Programming Consortium and ITVS’ Initiative, The Masculinity Project, entitled INVISIBLE MEN and a fiction short film, THE BIRTHDAY GIRL. She directs and produces educational videos for non-profit organizations such as Johns Hopkins Medical Center’s Project Restore and GLSEN, in addition to producing spots for Nickelodeon. In 2010, Tucker was a Yaddo fellow.

Having worked in various capacities at Big Mouth since 2003, producer Beth Davenport brings over eight years of production and outreach experience in television, commercials and award-winning documentaries for P.O.V., Sundance Channel, BBC and Arte France as well as directing advocacy videos and short films. Film credits include: the Emmy-nominated film DEADLINE, Thomas Balmes’ WRONGFUL DEATH and ELECTION DAY. Beth is currently a producer at Arts Engine, Inc./Big Mouth Films and is producing THE DISHES, directed by Katy Chevigny and directing PUSHING THE ELEPHANT, a feature-length documentary (Human Rights Watch Film Festival, IDFA).

Producer Katy Chevigny, Arts Engine’s co-founder and senior director, is a documentary filmmaker, entrepreneur and nonprofit manager. For fifteen years, Chevigny has advocated for a diverse media culture, one that illuminates important stories and amplifies voices not often heard in the mainstream media. Chevigny founded Arts Engine and its predecessor Big Mouth Productions. As a film director, Chevigny most recently directed the film ELECTION DAY, which premiered at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in March 2007 and was broadcast on public television by POV in 2008. Chevigny also co-directed Deadline (2004), an Emmy-nominated documentary about the dramatic events that took place in Illinois in 2003 concerning capital punishment. The film aired on NBC in July 2004 and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, won a CINE Golden Eagle Grand Jury Award and the Thurgood Marshall Journalism Award. Chevigny has produced many award-winning documentaries at Arts Engine, including: ARCTIC SON, JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CHINESE MEDICINE TODAY, NUYORICAN DREAM, INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY AND OUTSIDE LOOKING IN: TRANSRACIAL ADOPTION IN AMERICA.

Co-Producer Jolene Pinder has worked at Arts Engine for the past three years. Prior to becoming the Festival and Outreach Director, she was an Associate Producer at Big Mouth Films (the production arm of Arts Engine). She is currently a co-producer on the Arts Engine work-in-progress (A)SEXUAL. In her role in the production department, she was Associate Producer for Outreach and Distribution on Arts Engine’s latEST RELEASES, ARCTIC SON AND ELECTION DAY. JOLENE’S PERSONAL FILM Bismillah was a finalist for the International Documentary Association’s David Wolper Award, won first place in the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ College Television Awards (Student Emmys) and was the recipient of a CINE Golden Eagle Award. Her short FILM LITTLE FOUNTAINS screened at MoMA as part of her work with the UnionDocs Collaborative.

Editor Michelle Chang was the Co-Editor on the documentary film CAMP VICTORY, AFGHANISTAN, and an Associate Editor on PUSHING THE ELEPHANT. She has assisted on a variety of other feature documentary films including WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?, THE NINE LIVES OF MARION BARRY (HBO), and IF GOD IS WILLING AND DA CREEK DON’T RISE (HBO). She also attended the Sundance Documentary Edit and Story Labs in 2008 as an assistant and in 2009 as a fellow. Prior to becoming an editor, she worked as an Associate Producer for the television newsmagazines 20/20 and Primetime.

Our moderator will be Ingrid Kopp. She is the director of U.S. Shooting People, an international networking organization for independent filmmakers. She began her career in the Documentaries department at Channel 4 Television in the U.K. While there, she worked across original commissions and documentary acquisitions and ran a series of workshops for emerging filmmakers. Kopp moved to New York in 2004 to work as an associate producer for a number of independent production companies before taking her current post at Shooting People. She writes about film, social media and technology for various publications and teaches Digital Bootcamp workshops for filmmakers. She also works as a documentary programming consultant for film festivals, broadcasters and foundations.

My friend (and D-Worder) Joanne Nerenberg is desperately looking to for a laptop with Final Cut on it to borrow for the day this Thursday, Dec 2. It's to finalize and play back a video she's preparing for a huge benefit for Groundswell in Brooklyn.

It's for a great cause. Groundswell is dedicated to using art as a tool for social change by bringing together professional artists, community organizations, and youth to collaboratively create public art projects in communities across the city.

If you can help out, get in touch with Joanne directly: jojonerenberg@msn.com
