Media Studies Professor Brett Ingram’s Documentary Film Rocaterrania Selected to Screen in Raleigh as Part of the Inaugural “Film Shorts in the Park” Program

Brett IngramThe City of Raleigh’s Office of Raleigh Arts, in collaboration with the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department, recently announced the debut of Film Shorts in the Park, a series of free outdoor screenings of works by North Carolina filmmakers, curated by John Munson.

Media Studies Professor Brett Ingram’s ROCATERRANIA, an award-winning feature length documentary about the late visionary artist Renaldo Kuhler, has been selected to screen as part of the inaugural program. ROCATERRANIA will screen in Pullen Park, Raleigh’s largest park, at 7:30pm on Thursday, September 22, 2016, and will be paired with a short film, ATOMIC RETRO CUSTOMS: THE ELECTRIC GUITARS OF MATT NOWICKI.

Variety called Rocaterrania “a weird delight,” San Jose Metro called it “fascinating,” Review Vancouver called it “truly inventive,” Vancouver Observer called it “a fascinating must-see for dreamers,” and The Buenos Aires International Film Festival called it “an endless flow of visions and experiences guided by Kuhler’s voice; a single trip to the loving and overwhelming imagination of an unexpected artist.”

Call it what you like, but if you happen to be in Raleigh on September 22nd and want to see the film outdoors on a big screen in a beautiful park, it may be worth your time.

Ingram is currently finishing up a book, Renaldo Kuhler’s Rocaterrania, forthcoming from Blast Books (New York) in Fall 2017. For more information about Rocaterrania, visit:  http://www.brettingram.org
