Wolfgang Hastert Screens at Strange Beauty Fest

Strange Beauty Film Festival opens Thursday, January 24.  The festival, now in its fourth year, was founded by husband-and-wife team Jim Haverkamp and Joyce Ventimiglia. Haverkamp, a member of Duke’s Arts of the Moving Image program faculty, and Ventimiglia hold Strange Beauty at Durham’s Manbites Dog Theater. While many of the films that will screen at the festival can be seen online, it is the festival’s format that attracts the audience – the Triangle’s Indyweek says the festival is “stuffed to the breaking point with delightful and provocative work this year.”

This year, Duke MFAEDA student Wolfgang Hastert‘s “WOLFKINO” was selected as one of the 56 films that will screen over the weekend.  Hastert’s “WOLFKINO” is described: “A man, his neighbors, and a toy movie camera.”
