Re-Envisioning Film Across the Disciplines
Wednesday, November 28th
Mariachi High (2012)
Directed by Ilana Trachtman & Kim Connell
7:00 p.m., Chase Auditorium
Organized by Patty Kelly, Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology
Mariachi High presents a year in the life of the champion mariachi ensemble at Zapata High School on the Rio Grande in South Texas. As they compete and perform with musical virtuosity, these teens and the music they make will inspire, surprise, and bring you to your feet. High school never sounded so good.
This semester, Beth Willman (Astronomy), Patty Kelly (Anthropology), and John Muse (Visual Studies Postdoctoral Fellow) present three films that variously explore vision and visual culture. Each screening will be followed by a public discussion between the sponsoring faculty and the filmmaker.
This series is held in coordination with “What You See is What You Get: Vision, Knowledge, and Technology Across the Disciplines,” four conversations concerning visual studies at Haverford sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Library, and the Hurford Center.
