Jonathan Rattner, assistant professor of Cinema & Media Arts and Art at Vanderbilt University, will screen recent short films and talk about his artistic practice as a filmmaker. Combining documentary and experimental cinematic traditions, using a mixture of 16mm film and digital, Rattner’s films investigate narratives surrounding place and our relationship to place from outsider/inhabitant perspectives.
In addition to screening The Interior, an observational film that explores the isolated life of a dog musher living in remote central Alaska with 56 dogs, Rattner will present an early version of his current project Southern Refuge, a poetic observational film about the changing lives of refugees and immigrants living in Nashville, TN.
Jonathan Rattner is an award-winning filmmaker that produces experimental nonfiction films and videos. He has exhibited work at the Anthology Film Archives, Walker Art Center, The Whitechapel Gallery, the World Social Forum, and the Society for Cinema and Media Studies.
