Flat Hat News: City Symphony Documentaries

This year, W&M professor Tim Barnard and filmmaker-in-residence Jes Therkelsen are team-teaching a documentary production course in conjunction with the festival. Students in the class will produce two documentary productions inspired by the city symphony, a genre of film that originated with 1920’s avant-garde filmmakers. One project, a W&M Global Summer City Symphony, will compile footage shot around the world by William & Mary students studying abroad. The other project will pay tribute to our very own city of Williamsburg. Both projects will include music composed by music majors at the College. The two films will be shown at the Kimball Theater over the festival weekend.
