Call for Papers

 

2006 Film and History League Conference

"The Documentary Tradition"

www.filmandhistory.org

 

AREA: Errol Morris

 

Documentary filmmaker Errol Morris is known for winning the 2005 Academy Award for Best Documentary for The Fog of War; for his 1998 film The Thin Blue Line, which both resulted in the release of death-row inmate Randall Adams and introduced the now-familiar dramatic reenactment; and for his device known as the Interrotron, which allows direct eye contact (ostensibly) between the subject and the spectator.   He is a leading contemporary practitioner in "the documentary tradition."

 

We are inviting submissions on all aspects of the non-fiction work of Errol Morris, including his full-length documentaries, his television series First Person, and his ads for the Move On/Kerry campaign.  

 

Deadline for submission is July  21, 2006.  Earlier electronic submissions of 

250-word abstracts are preferred. 

 

The Film and History League conference details can be found at 

www.filmandhistory.org.  The meeting will run from 8-12 November, 2006, in the Dolce Conference Center near the DFW airport.  A spectrum of other areas will evolve on the web site over time.
