Theatre & Film Presents: Jane Wodening on "Brakhage's Childhood"

Fine Arts Building Balcony Theatre (Room 400)
Wodening and Brakhage

Jane Wodening, writer and first wife of legendary avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage, will make a rare public appearance in support of her latest book, Brakhage's Childhood (2015), at 4pm, Friday February 12th, in the Balcony Theatre (Room 300) of UGA's Fine Arts Building.

Wodening will speak and take questions from the public about her long and celebrated career as an author and about her thirty-year collaboration with Brakhage on dozens of visionary experimental movies about their domestic lives—including, perhaps most famously, Window Water Baby Moving (1959) and Thigh Line Lyre Triangular (1961), two poetic documentary records of the births of the couple's first and third children. Wodening will be joined by film scholar Brian Price, who will read a passage from Brakhage's Childhood, her recently published chronicle of Stan Brakhage's Colorado upbringing. (Copies will be available for purchase.)

Jane Wodening's visit is sponsored by the UGA Department of Theatre and Film Studies.
