DocuClub in June!
Our June DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, June 22, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker).
This month, we will screen a rough cut of SPOILS: EXTRAORDINARY HARVEST by Alex Mallis. This short documentary captures intimate portraits of three New Yorkers on a journey through the culture of dumpster diving, illuminating a practice as old as agriculture. The fly-on-the-wall access to these gleaners offers an unvarnished glimpse into one night of urban harvest. For more info about the film, go to: www.analectfilms.com.
Producer/Director Alexander RamÃrez-Mallis is a filmmaker living and working out of Brooklyn, NY. His short documentary, THE DENTIST, was selected to play at the 2011 Independent Film Festival of Boston. His collaborative short, MATTHEW 24:12, won best film and best directing at the 2011 International Doc Challenge at Hot Docs in Toronto. He is an avid photographer and greatly enjoys the darkroom. He is an MFA candidate for Integrated Media Arts at Hunter College (CUNY) and a member of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective.
Our moderator will be Nonso Christian Ugbode, a writer, producer and web/media conceptualist. He works as the director of digital media for the National Black Programming Consortium in Harlem, NY, where he oversees content and style for NBPC's Blackpublicmedia.Org website. He also manages in-house production of content and e-advocacy for NBPC. As a producer and filmmaker his recent works include COLORED FRAMES, a film about black painters directed by Lerone Wilson, currently in distribution and screening at festivals. He received his BFA in Film & Television Production at New York University.
