Event: 60 Writers/60 Places

60 Writers/60 Places, a film by Luca Dipierro and Michael Kimball
will be screened as part of Pratt's Writer's Forum at 12 PM., Friday,
December 11, in the Engineering Building, Room 371, on Pratt's Brooklyn
Campus. The film is free and open to the public.

Produced by Little Burn Films, 60 Writers/60 Places is 60 different writers
reading their work for 60 seconds each in 60 different places. 60
Writers/60 Places is about writers and their writing occupying
untraditional spaces, everyday life, everywhere. There is Blake Butler
reading on the subway, Deb Olin Unferth in a laundromat, Jamie
Gaughran-Perez in a beauty salon, Tita Chico in a dressing room, Giancarlo
DiTrapano in front of a church, Tao Lin next to a hot dog cart, Adam
Robison in an artist's studio, and Adam Robinson in a dumpster.

60 Writers/60 Places begins with the idea of the tableaux vivant, a living
picture where the camera never moves. But instead of silently holding their
poses, the writers read a short excerpt of their work-another kind of
framing that linguistically echoes the frame of the tableaux vivant. The
film uses ideas from painting, stage performance, early photography,
contemporary photo compositing, other documentaries (e.g., Jorgen Leth's 66
Scenes from America), and old postcards.

There is an interaction between each writer, their writing, and the place
in which they read. Besides the internal structure of each shot, there is
an external architecture that accumulates among the 60 places. The writer
and the writing go on no matter what is going on around them.

Several of the writers featured in the film will be present at the
screening. For more information on the film, visit

Friday Forum is curated by co-directors Nelly Reifler and Gina Zucker,
and is sponsored by the Pratt Writing Program. For more information on

And Good Luck on Finals, everyone!
