World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: ROBERT FLAHERTY

Robert Flaherty is proclaimed as one of the founding fathers of documentary film, who became part of the mythology of the burgeoning world-wide documentary movement of the 1930s. At the heart of Flaherty's work lies an often ambiguous negotiation with the effects of exploration, colonialism and modernity on indigenous communities
