"Class Close-Up: Documentary Film and the City" in the Princeton Alumni Weekly

This Fall's class -- which I'm excited and intrigued to be co-teaching with historian Alison Isenberg -- is featured in this month's issue of the Princeton Alumni Weekly. It's appropriate, since Harlan Joseph was, for six weeks in the summer of 1964, a student at Princeton University. He, and 39 other boys, were chosen to be part of a pilot program for the Upward Bound program, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and staffed by Princeton faculty and students.

Taller the the Trees: Op-Doc Screening in L.A.

Taller Than The Trees is screening tonight in L.A. at the Landmark. It's part of an International Documentary Association screening honoring some of this year's Op-Doc Films. iTaller Than the Trees is the story of Masami Hayata, a Tokyo man delicately balancing his roles as advertising executive, father, husband and devoted son - and caregiver - to his ailing mother. It's directed by Megan Mylan and produced with Emily Taguchi. Peter Albrechtsen did the wonderful sound. The film will be featured on The New York Times in a few weeks.
