Carthage welcomes award-winning documentary filmmaker Jeremy Workman Thursday
Carthage will screen Dziga Vertov’s classic Soviet documentary “A Man With a Movie Camera” (1929) in conjunction with a visit from award-winning documentary filmmaker Jeremy Workman.
Both a visual document of urban life in 1920s Moscow, Kyiv, and Odessa, as well as a meditation on the power of film as a universal language, Vertov’s classic work is considered by many critics to be one of the greatest films of all time.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker and editor Jeremy Workman, whose most recent documentary, “Lily Topples the World” (2021), was the winner of the SXSW Film Festival’s Jury Grand Prize for Best Documentary and the San Francisco International Film Festival’s Audience Award for Best Documentary. A two-time Emmy award nominee, Mr. Workman is also the creative director of Wheelhouse Creative, a movie trailer company that caters to indie film. In this capacity, he has edited over 100 theatrical movie trailers and high-profile creative montages.
The film screening and Mr. Workman’s visit is part of Carthage’s Art Symposium: “Beauty in Expression.”
