Professor Ingram to Screen Two Features in France

Brett_2_2013Media Studies Associate Professor Brett Ingram will screen two of his documentary films at two separate events in France this May and June.

Rocaterrania, a feature length documentary about the life and work of visionary illustrator Renaldo Kuhler, will screen in May at the Raw Vision Exhibition at Halle St. Pierre Museum in Paris. The screening will be part of the Best of the Best of Raw Vision Magazine artists over the past 30+ years.

Raw Vision is the most important international publication dedicated to Outsider Art. As a direct result of Ingram’s documentary film, his discovery of the work of Kuhler’s work, and his efforts to exhibit the work, Raw Vision has deemed Kuhler to be one of the “Best of the Best” ever in the world of Outsider Art.

Monster Road, a feature length documentary about the life and work of Seattle animator Bruce Bickford, screened at the Annecy International Festival of Animated Film in Annecy, France back in 2004 when it was released. Annecy is widely considered to be the most prestigious festival for animated film in the world. Ten years later, the director of Annecy invited Ingram to again screen Monster Road as a celebration of Bruce Bickford’s astoundingly original contribution to the world of international animation.

Ingram was also recently contracted to author a book on the life and work of illustrator Renaldo Kuhler.
