MFAEDA student Joel Wanek (’13) recently screened his film, “Heart of Durham” at the 15th Antimatter Film Festival in Victoria, BC, an international media art and experimental cinema festival that features screenings, performances, and installations.. The festival also included work by Duke faculty member, Jim Haverkamp, who showed his work “When Walt Whitman Was A Little Girl.” Duke visiting artist Deborah Stratman’s “Village, silenced” was also screened, as was the work of UNC faculty member (and partner of Duke faculty member Bill Brown) Sabine Gruffat. All in all, a great showing for the Triangle and Duke in particular.
