Filmmaker Marco Williams

The Center for Documentary Studies is pleased to present a public talk with filmmaker Marco Williams, the 2014–15 Lehman Brady Visiting Joint Chair Professor in Documentary Studies and American Studies. CDS coordinates the cross-campus collaboration between Duke University and the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, which brings distinguished practitioners and scholars of the documentary arts to both schools.

“From Opposition to Empathy: A Conversation with Marco Williams”
Wednesday, March 25, 7 p.m., reception to follow
Nasher Museum of Art
2001 Campus Dr., Durham, North Carolina

His films, the 2014 Guggenheim Fellow says, are “about the boundaries marking difference in the U.S.—racial politics, identity, and immigration.” In this conversation—”From Opposition to Empathy”—Williams will show excerpts from his films, including content from the website of his most recent, The Undocumented, in order to illustrate his approach in navigating storylines where his main characters are often in direct opposition to one another.
