Georgia Great Works Seminar: The New Era of Documentary Filmmaking in Georgia
This Georgia Great Works Seminar will be moderated by Hal Jacobs, a Decatur-based documentary filmmaker who also organizes a bimonthly screening of “short docs” on southern people and places. Jacobs will share excerpts from his own work, including stories about segregation at the Fox Theatre; efforts by Chattahoochee Riverkeeper to protect Atlanta’s waterways; biographies of two different women from the north Georgia mountains, Lillian Smith and Mary Hambidge. Guests will include interviewees from his films as well as other area filmmakers who focus on Georgia topics.
The seminar will meet at the Bill and Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Emory University for four Tuesday evening sessions: November 6, 13, 20, and 27. Event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Seating is limited. To reserve a seat, contact the Fox Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-727-6424.
This program is co-sponsored by Georgia Humanities.
