Meet documentary filmmaker Allison Argo, and hear how she has travelled the world in search of some of the most compelling animal stories ever told.
Join us on June 29th from 4:15-5:15 PM for a discussion about her works and her career. You’ll have an opportunity to see clips from some of her favorite films and learn how and why she chose her subjects.
Argo’s films have won over 100 awards internationally, including six national Emmys, DuPont Columbia, Genesis, Jackson Hole, NY, Banff, and dozens of awards from New Zealand to Japan. Argo is known for her emotionally-charged and deeply personal films – in particular her intimate portraits of endangered animals. The nearly two dozen award-winning films she’s produced, directed and written have all been broadcast by PBS and/or National Geographic and have reached audiences worldwide.
Her latest work The Last Pig continues Argo’s mission to provide “a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves”– and to deepen understanding and respect for all beings.
This workshop is hosted by Different Faces Different Voices, as part of the Flicks4Chicks film contest, in collaboration with Women in Film and Video/New England Chapter.
