Skip Norman: Here and Now

American filmmaker, cinematographer, photographer, visual anthropologist, and educator Skip Norman (Wilbert Reuben Norman, Jr.) was born in Baltimore. In 1966—following five years in Germany and Denmark, where he developed an interest in acting and directing alongside his studies in German language and literature—he was accepted into the inaugural class at Berlin’s DFFB Film School, where he collaborated with many artists, including Harun Farocki and Helke Sander. Featuring premieres of new restorations and newly produced subtitles, Skip Norman: Here and Now explores Norman’s multifaceted, international career, bringing his practice as a filmmaker into dialogue with his work as a cinematographer and bridging his time on both sides of the Atlantic. This weekend, we honor Skip Norman by screening two of his later-career titles, chosen from a recent retrospective of his work. The full retrospective was curated by Jess Cumming and organized in partnership with Open City Documentary Festival, Goethe-Institut London, and the National Gallery of Art.
