DocuClub in May: Wednesday, May 27, 7 p.m.

DocuClub is holding its May screening on Wednesday, May 27, at the beautiful new theater facilities of the 92YTribeca, located at 200 Hudson Street (at Canal). You can take the E, 1, or 6 trains to Canal.

Our moderator will be Yance Ford. Ford is Series Producer of P.O.V. and has been instrumental in curating the acclaimed documentary film series on PBS for seven years. Ford works closely with P.O.V.’s executive director to evaluate films submitted to P.O.V., oversees P.O.V.’s annual call for entries, and coordinates P.O.V.’s annual programming advisory board. Privately, Ford is a Programming Associate, Documentary Features for the Sundance Film Festival and serves on the IFW Advisory Committee. She is also a consultant and pre screener for Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, True/False, and Newport International Film Festival among others. She has served on juries at Full Frame, Silverdocs, and ITVS, appeared on panels at True/False, Sunny Side of the Doc and mentored emerging filmmakers at the NALIP Producer’s Academy. A graduate of Hamilton College and the production workshop at Third World Newsreel, Ford is currently in development on her first film, a documentary film about race and murder in the suburbs of New York City.

We are excited to be screening PARTING THE WATERS Co-directed and co-produced by Josh Waletzky and longtime DocuClub member Jenny Levison. Despite the fact that swimming pools have been racially integrated for over fifty years, two thirds of black and Latino children still can’t swim. PARTING THE WATERS follows African-American Olympic swimmers Maritza Correia and Cullen Jones, and three talented young black and Latino swimmers coming up behind them, in a fish-out-of water story that takes place in the water. You can see a trailer of the film at: dotellproductions.com/site/partingthewaters.

Josh Waletzky, Director, Editor and Co-Producer, is a highly acclaimed documentary filmmaker who has made dozens of films that probe deep into the lives of people caught in social and cultural crossroads. His extensive body of documentary work includes Academy Award-nominated Music For The Movies: Bernard Herrmann, Image Before My Eyes, Partisans Of Vilna, Sacred Stage: The Marinsky Theater, and Shaker Heights: Struggle For Integration.

Producer, Co-Director and Writer Jenny Levison is a screenwriter, playwright, and filmmaker who specializes in the use of arts media in social justice organizing. Her writing and production credits include the CD of Mexican and Mexican American labor music, Nuestras Voces Se Levantan Para la Justicia; the musical theater work Shtil, Mayn Corazon- A Yiddish Tango Cabaret; the documentary films Niel and Phil and Live Free or Dye; and the satiric media campaign Billionaires for Bush (or Gore).

Job title: Documentary Filmmaker
Organization name: Imagine Project, Inc. http://imagineproject.org
Location of job: New York City
Last date of receiving volunteer applications: Open
Contact details for receiving applications: cdavidson@imagineproject.org

About Imagine Project
THE IMAGINE PROJECT Inc., is a not for profit 501(c) 3 corporation founded in 1992, dedicated to nurturing a child’s creativity through the arts. Through the design and delivery of creative and performing arts programs to inner city children in homeless shelters, community centers and NYC public schools, we create and facilitate a safe environment for children to explore and engage their creative energy.

The Opportunity
This past winter, the Imagine Project submitted a children’s musical to the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival, the largest multi-arts festival in North America, and last week, we were notified that our submission won one of three spots in the FringeJR program. The show will be cast with at least 50% homeless shelter kids. This as an outstanding opportunity for a talented filmmaker to capture a unique, exciting narrative chronicling the experience of talented children living under daunting circumstances as they endeavor to pull off a professional musical at the New York International Fringe Festival.

This is an unpaid opportunity, as the Imagine Project is a low budget organization with the bulk of our funding going toward our youth programs. However, we would be willing to discuss covering some small portion of the costs. The filmmaker should be available to start as soon as possible and will work approximately 3-4 hours per week through the week of 8/14/09.

Requirements
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in documentary filmmaking, preferably with directly related subject matter. Timeliness and attention to detail required. Access to up to date equipment and financiers is preferable.

Apply
Qualified applicants send a cover letter and resume to cdavidson@imagineproject.org with links to samples of your work available online.

Jonathan, the best thing to do is to do a search of D-Word members by country – to get there just click on the "People" link at the top left of this page and then select "Advanced Search"

You'll see that we have quite a few members in Mumbai, although not many regulars.

Anyone need a hand during production any time in the next month and a half? Camera, sound, lighting, I can do it all, and I have a PD-170 package if you need a 2nd camera (or first!). I am completely open, schedule wise, and would love to pick some gigs up! Just finished a nonfiction piece for Huggies as assistant story editor: www.pull-upspottyproject.com and here's a link to my camera work: www.kenfrenchmedia.com.

I appreciate the consideration!

A national competition seeking the best videos, photographs, and stories describing how individuals, families and communities are managing during these hard times.

One of the unexpected outcomes of the Great Depression was a decade of creative outpouring that covered the U.S. map. Under the auspices of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), thousands of artists fanned across the country documenting the experiences of everyday Americans as they worked to maintain their families, their communities, and their way of life in the face of a national economic crisis.

Now, as Americans are again experiencing financial hardship and uncertainty, First Person Arts invites artists to document how this generation of Americans is coping.

Inspired by the artists of the WPA, who documented the experiences of Americans in every part of the country, First Person Arts is asking artists to help craft the first draft of the history of our era by capturing, in photographs, on video, or in writing, the stories of America and its people during these difficult times.

Our goal is to gather stories from all 50 states.

Artists:
We are looking for short memoirs and essays, documentary films, and photographs that depict Americans from all walks of life. We are especially interested in stories that are unique to your family, your community, your town, your region – that capture the idiosyncratic things that are happening where you live – the slices of life that, taken together, will give us a First Person picture of America in 2009 – the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful.

Guidelines:
Writing submissions – up to 2,500 words.
Film and video submissions – up to five minutes, excluding credits.
Photography submissions – may include up to five photographs, with or without accompanying text of up to 100 words per image.

Submission deadline: June 30, 2009

Finalists in each category (writing, film, and photography) will be featured on the First Person Arts website (www.firstpersonarts.org) and at the First Person Festival of Memoir and Documentary Art, November 4-8, 2009. First place winners in each genre will be invited to Philadelphia to participate in the festival. A cash prize will be awarded to the best story overall.

Miranda,

I do know your sister! In fact I went to prom with her all those years ago and just last year she helped me and our friends win the Coney Island Sand Sculpture contest. How funny! Definitely email me. I was actually going to email you after I found out you worked on IOUSA because I've been working as an associate producer and assisstant editor for a company doing a doc on the financial crisis.

Great to see you here!


Miranda Yousef

Sounds good--definitely e-mail me.

To everyone else-especially in LA-do you know of anyone seeking a feature editor? I've got a couple of things that have been up in the air for a while, and need to nail something down.

Thanks,
- Miranda

Our documentary UPSTREAM BATTLE is playing at DOXA in Vancouver B.C. this Saturday at 12:30pm.

A coalition of Native Americans battle to force the removal of dams owned by billionaire Warren Buffett that have devastated the salmon population on California's Klamath River. The hydro-power dams contributed to one of the worst fish die-offs in U.S. history and continue to turn the water into a toxic soup. 'If the fish are sick, we're sick,' says Merv George of the Hoopa Tribe. To rescue their river and save their culture, Merv and his combatants first travel to Scotland, then to the richest man in the United States. The dam owners praise hydro power as a low-cost, climate-friendly source of energy, a valuable resource they say they couldn't afford to lose. Yet, the tribes may soon trigger the largest dam removal project in history.

The film has been shown at more than 25 festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival. It won a Human Rights Award, Best Environmental Film, and most recently, the EarthVision Grand Jury Prize in Santa Cruz.
