SCREENWRITING AS EARTH ART

In this masterclass, Jonathan Raymond will discuss his collaboration with director Kelly Reichardt (OLD JOY, WENDY AND LUCY, MEEK’S CUTOFF and NIGHT MOVES), with special attention to issues of chance, failure, and regional imagination.

We all know there are excellent stories in our own backyards. The lives of our families and neighbours are rife with tales of betrayal, secrecy, and strange acts of rebellion.

How do you dig them up? How do you shape them into something compelling to the rest of the world? Also, how do you live through the soul-damaging experience of real failure?

Session time: Sat 24th September 11:00am. See the full program here.
