Quarantine is not slowing down Temple FMA Professor Rea Tajiri. Her incredible works are groundbreaking and inspirational with films that straddle documentary and art film genres and a way of finding new ways of storytelling that embrace the murky spaces of memory, history, and public consciousness.
In October, Professor Peter d’Agostino will be in Rome and Venice to present recent video works and a new book, Peter d’Agostino / World-Wide-Walks: Crossing Natural-Cultural-Virtual Frontiers, with an introduction by Kristine Stiles and co-edited with David Tafler. ( Intellect, UK / University of Chicago Press.).
As of 2019, for a second year in a row Temple has kept its reputation as one of the top schools producing Fulbright scholars. I had the chance to correspond with one of them who is a Temple Film and Media MFA Alumni, Kay Hannahan.
