FINALLY SOMETHING GOOD ON TV
We are excited to announce the launch of a cable television series by new AAFF Media Partner Community Television Network of Ann Arbor. “Let’s Watch With the Ann Arbor Film Festival,” produced by Dana Denha, focuses on filmmakers who have shown in the Ann Arbor Film Festival. Each episode features an interview with a different filmmaker along with their work. The first video in the series, which can be found here, spotlights media artist Heidi Kumao, who teaches at the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan. Kumao's film, Swallowed Whole, was featured in the 53rd AAFF. The film poetically depicts extreme isolation and physical limitations as a result of a traumatic injury the filmmaker sustained while sledding. The film has shown and been awarded at film festivals all over the world.
