Living in the Story
Thursday, September 20, 2018 - 7:00pm • Vermont Center for Photography
A new film by award-winning director Lynn Estomin, Living in the Story documents 35 years of art-making by photographer Patrick Nagatani. The film portrays an artist deeply concerned with world events, who uses imagery and storytelling to raise awareness about modern anxieties, with an emphasis on the threat of nuclear weapons. Despite the serious content of his subject matter, his innovative images are compelling and entertaining. An engaging raconteur and teacher, Nagatani talks in the film about his projects, his unorthodox photographic techniques, and his subtle weaving together of fiction and fact. Director Lynn Estomin is a video and interactive media artist as well as professor of digital art and design at Lycoming College. Her award-winning documentaries have been exhibited at film festivals internationally and broadcasted nationally on PBS. Scott Nagatani’s hauntingly beautiful music score provides the film’s soundtrack. This screening is presented by Marlboro College, In-Sight Photography Project, and Vermont Center for Photography.
