  • 10/23Thorsten Trimpop: What We Talk About When We Talk About Cinema+

    Thursday, October 23, 2014, 6:30 – 8 p.m.



    "In the visual chaos of 21st century life, I believe the role of the documentary filmmaker is more complex and challenging than ever. We have a responsibility to both subject and viewer to seek out the inconvenient stories and bring them to light in a way that’s both honest and cinematic, being open to new forms of storytelling while maintaining a high ethical and artistic standard." Thorsten Trimpo

    Thorsten Trimpop is a filmmaker from Germany currently based in Cambridge, MA. He is completing work on his new documentary film, "The New Normal", a human-scale portrait of a small town in Japan’s nuclear exclusion zone.

    His first feature film, "The Irrational Remains", premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 2006 and won numerous awards. His work interweaves elements from fictional and documentary film traditions.

    He currently teaches filmmaking and film studies at Massachusetts College of Art and Boston University. He is also a fellow at the MIT Open Documentary Lab (opendoclab.mit.edu…) where he is working on a digital storytelling project that touches on issues of empire, ecology, and the human obsession with beauty.
