DocuClub in January!
Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday, January 18, at 7p.m., at DCTV.
This month, we will screen a rough cut of The Great Chicken Wing Hunt by Matt Reynolds. The Great Chicken Wing Hunt follows a band of misfits on a quest to find the worldâ€™s best Buffalo wing. It takes a humorous look at the popularity of Buffalo wings, one of Americaâ€™s most most loved foods, relationships, globalization, and the way trivial things inspire us. It asks the question, are there perfect things?
Director/Editor Matt Reynolds. From 2004 to 2007, he reported on eastern and central Europe for Reuters and The New York Times. Since moving to New York in 2008, he has worked as a film editor. As an assistant editor, he worked under Suzy Elmiger ("Big Night") and the late Karen Schmeer ("Fog of War;" "Fast, Cheap and Out of Control"). In 2001, Reynolds was editor for the launch of NHL Live, a daily talk show on NHL Network, and recently co-edited History Channelâ€™s "Zombieâ€™s: a Living History." "The Great Chicken Wing Hunt" is his first feature as a director.
Producer Elizabeth Mandel has worked for over ten years as a documentary producer and director. Most recently, she directed "Pushing the Elephant," together with Beth Davenport (broadcast on PBSâ€™s â€œIndependent Lensâ€ on March 29, 2011). Her producing credits include "Arctic Son" (Dir: Andrew Walton, broadcast POV 2007), and, as co-producer on Jennifer Foxâ€™s "Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman."
Supervising Editor Mary Manhardt has cut some of the most respected American documentaries of recent years, including "Street Fight," nominated for an Oscar in 2006, and "American Teen" (2008). Her work has won awards at Sundance, Hot Docs, SXSW, Tribeca and IDFA film festivals and aired on HBO, PBS, MTV, ABC, and AMC. Among the films she has edited or co-edited are "Monica & David," "The Farm" and "Camp Victory, Afghanistan."
