IAM at Tribeca Arts Center
Tuesday, February 19, 2008)
International Arts Movement (IAM) will feature producer Dunja Klemenc and filmmaker Macky Alston at its 2008 Encounter, "Generative Creativity: Transforming the Cultural River," from February 28th to March 1st at Tribeca Performing Arts Center (BMCC) in lower Manhattan.
Klemenc co-produced the Oscar-winning No Man's Land, which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2002. Her new film, Warchild, will be featured in the Encounter's curated film series, and she will be present for an in-depth discussion afterward. Macky Alston and founder/executive director of Exodus Transitional Community, Julio Medina, will also participate in a dialogue about their film Hard Road Home, facilitated by film curator Sarah Hanssen.
Additional programming for the encounter includes an art exhibit, music competition, lectures, musical performances, poetry readings, topical workshops, and vibrant inter-disciplinary artistic collaborations.
Past IAM events in Manila, Tokyo, and New York have focused on peacemaking, reconciliation and poverty. Registration for the Encounter is open at http://www.internationalartsmovement.org.
