Quantity: 61 digital audio files
Abstract: The HFA Visiting Directors Audio Collection at the Harvard Film Archive is a collection of streaming digital audio files recorded of each filmmaker visiting the HFA's cinematheque in 2008. Recordings include pre-screening introductions by curator Haden Guest and programmer David Pendleton and personal introductions by filmmakers as well as post-screening question and answer sessions between curators, programming staff, audience, and filmmakers.
The collection is arranged by year, with each year consisting of its own online finding aid. Recordings are arranged alphabetically by last name of the speaker within each year.
The HFA Visiting Directors Audio Collection at the Harvard Film Archive consists of recordings of filmmakers and special guests at the Harvard Film Archive's Cinematheque since 2008.Recordings in the collection reflect the diversity of content in the HFA's regular screening series, which offers a public cinematheque program, presenting films Friday through Monday nights. All screenings are held in the Archive's 200-seat theater located in the historic Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts.The HFA frequently invites filmmakers to discuss their work and engage with the vibrant community of students, professors, artists and cinephiles who regularly attend HFA screenings. Visitors in 2008 included American auteur Arthur Penn, American independent filmmakers David Gordon Green (George Washington) and Lance Hammer (Ballast), German director Jan Schütte (Love Comes Lately), Irish director John Boorman (The General), and Korean filmmaker Lee Chang-dong (Secret Sunshine), as well as avant-garde filmmakers Nathaniel Dorsky, Lawrence Weiner and Ernie Gehr. Some of the HFA's recent programs include retrospectives of the work of Edward Yang, Joseph Losey, Vincente Minnelli, Warren Sonbert, Bruce Conner and Richard Quine, as well as surveys such as Technicolor Dreams, Unseen Noir and Shaw Scope: A History of the Shaw Bros. Studio. HFA programs dating back to 1999 are browsable on our Past Film Series page.
