Craig Baldwin is a filmmaker, curator, publisher, and educator from San Francisco, California, who is visiting Ann Arbor for a series of screenings and to deliver the Penny W. Stamps Memorial Lecture. He is the director of seven 16mm ‘found-footage’ films–among them Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America and Sonic Outlaws–that are driven by an energized montage of found, archival, and original material. His own approach to the ‘collage-essay’ has been influenced by both the West Coast ‘Funk Assemblage’ aesthetic of Bruce Conner and also the Situationist practice of ‘detournement‘, and his technique has developed from a sort of long-form culture-jam to a more narratively driven political satire. He will lead a discussion about his personal artistic practice, his 25-year microcinema curatorial/exhibition project Other Cinema, his international DVD-publishing initiative OCD, and their positions within the larger experimental/underground film movement.
 

Baldwin is currently a professor at the University of California at Davis. His works have been screened at the New York Film Festival, the Musee du Louvre, and the Whitney Biennial.
