Black Maria Film Festival Touring Program
The Keene State College Film Studies Department is excited to host the 2020 Black Maria Film Festival touring program. Since 1981, the Thomas Edison Black Maria Film Festival has been celebrating and preserving the diversity, invention, and vitality of the short film. The mission of the festival is to shine a light on issues and struggles within contemporary society and exhibit the work of diverse filmmakers from across the US and around the world.
The program presented at Keene State College will include creative narrative, experimental, animation and documentary shorts. Some films include A Month of Single Frames directed by Lynn Sachs, which chronicles the last days of feminist and lesbian film pioneer Barbara Hammer; The Phantom 52 a dreamy animation directed by Geoff Marslett that portrays the hallucinatory experiences of a long distance truck driver on the open road and Censoring Nuremburg a short documentary by David Busan that chronicles Arnold Joseph, a translator of mail to and from Nazi prisoners at the Nuremberg Trails.
