Changing Faces of Audio-Visual Documents: Moana and Fokus
April 4, 2013
Sami van Ingen is a filmmaker and visual artist, and is the great-grandson of Robert Flaherty, considered to be “the father of documentary." Van Ingen works primarily in video, film, installation and performance art. This exceptional event combines a screening of Van Ingen’s tantalizing short film Fokus, with the virtually never-screened sound version of Moana, the documentary shot by Flaherty as a silent film in 1926 in Samoa and later meticulously dubbed by his daughter Monica.
