Award-winning filmmaker Stephen Maing will be on campus for a screening of his documentary, High Tech, Low Life. The film—which won Best Documentary from the Little Rock Film Festival and Independent Film Festival Boston, among other awards—follows two of China’s first citizen reporters as they travel the country chronicling underreported news and social issue stories. Maing is a fellow of the Sundance Documentary Institute and has received grants from the MacArthur Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts and the Independent Television Service. His filmmaking merges an interest in underrepresented individuals and communities, and the evolving considerations of identity, visual language and narrative structure. The screening is sponsored by the Video and Film Arts Department with support from the Mixed Media Speaker Series.
