An experimental filmmaker from New York, Jennifer Reeves hand-painted her most recent film, 2008's When it was Blue
, a 16mm nature film about the world’s various ecosystems that includes footage from around the globe. A veteran filmmaker who started making movies 20 years ago, Reeves teaches film part-time at Bard College's Milton Avery School of the Arts, The Cooper Union, Millennium Film Workshop and the School of Visual Arts in the Photography and Related Media MFA program. She is in town today to give a guest lecture at 10 a.m. as part of professor Brett Kashmere’s film class. The lecture takes place at Mudd 443 (the Shooting Studio), which is on the fourth floor of Mudd Library. Reeves will then present her movie at a screening at 8 tonight at Oberlin College’s West Lecture Hall (Science Center, Room A 162, 119 Woodland St.). Both events are free and open to the public. This screening marks the first installment of SIGHT LINES: Dialogues in Film and Media, an Exhibition Practices Initiative, a multi-media series that's part of Oberlin’s Cinema Studies program.
