Martin Edits Book Series on Black Filmmakers
Posted: Friday, August 31, 2012
Michael Martin, professor of Communication and Culture and American Studies, is collaborating with IU Press and the Black Film Center/Archive to launch a new book series devoted to the study of black filmmaking in the Global diaspora.
Initial research on the series led Martin to publish several articles based on interviews with black filmmakers, including Stanley Nelson, Yoruba Richen, Donnie Betts, Khalil Muhammad, and Bob Young.
His documentary film, In the Absence of Peace, was accepted for distribution by Third World Newsreel.
Martin also presented papers at UCLA and the University of Ottowa, and was a respondent to a paper by Jacqueline Stewart at the Chicago Film Seminar.
