Join the WIFV Documentary Roundtable and learn what it takes to put together a DVD release of a documentary film. We will be joined by filmmaker Cid Collins Walker to discuss her recent documentary, Arc Of Light: A Portrait of Anna Campbell Bliss. The film premiered this past spring, and now they are preparing for a DVD release for the fall.
ARC OF LIGHT: A Portrait of Anna Campbell Bliss is about an artist, architect and designer who has devoted her life to the creation of works of art that explore the complex intersections between art, technology, science, nature, poetry, mathematics, and architecture. A true pioneer in American Modernism, Bliss was one of the first women ever trained as an architect at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. The film looks at the astonishing range of Bliss's work, from small painterly and digitally based studies of color and light to architectural site commissions of immense scale. It also puts her work in art-historical context and traces her Modernist influences, including the Bauhaus artists of the 1920s. At age 87, Bliss continues to take on large-scale site commissions and create new works of art in her Salt Lake City studio.
