Screening: Friday, September 1, 7 pm
Central to Fonoroff’s creative process is a deep involvement in almost all of the phases of a film’s production—from scripting and shooting to editing and finishing of image and sound elements. “Though I begin work on a film with a rough plan, the process remains fluid, indeterminate: partly a matter of calculation and planning, partly of serendipitous discovery. Through most phases of the process, I work to shape a story through constant revision of both sound and picture elements; so the films may be considered palimpsests that have been subjected to numerous revisions of thought and idea.” Fonoroff’s films have screened widely in the U.S. and elsewhere, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. She has held residencies at the MacDowell Colony and the Ucross Foundation among others, and has received a Guggenheim Fellowship. She has been teaching courses in filmmaking at UNM for the past twenty years.
