The President’s Council of Cornell Women Film Panel
Sat Mar 5 • 1:45 – 3:15
Willard Straight Theatre
free and open to the public

As part of the PCCW Annual Meeting, which this year has “The Arts” as its theme, this panel will feature excerpts of work and appearances by Cornell alumna, faculty and students, with a Q&A with filmmakers to follow. The panel will be moderated by Deborah Hoard ‘78, President of local film company PhotoSynthesis Productions. Cornell Cinema will bookend the PCCW weekend with screenings of Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict (2015). Guggenheim did not attend Cornell but she did make possible the Peggy Guggenheim Studentship Program in Venice, Italy, which enables graduate students to train in Venice each year. Cornell Cinema will also host PCCW panelist and film editor Kathryn Schubert ’05 at a screening of Experimenter, a fictional version of the controversy surrounding the "obedience experiments" conducted by social psychologist Stanley Milgram at Yale University in 1961, which she edited, on Friday, March 4. Schubert studied philosophy at Cornell but has been working as an editor on independent films for several years, including acclaimed indies Beasts of the Southern Wild (first asst. editor), and Only Lovers Left Alive (assoc. editor).
