Ravinia profiled the creative process behind the editing of Kartemquin's upcoming film A Good Man in their magazine recently. The fascinating article offers great insight into how editor David E. Simpson has constructed a story from over 200 hours of raw footage documenting choreographer Bill T. Jones' creation of a dance-theatre performance at Ravinia on the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. A digital copy of the article "Following A Good Man" is now available at the Ravinia website for print and download (click through to page 22-23).
For Chicago audiences, tickets are still available for the sneak preview and discussion of A Good Man on November 14th as part of the Chicago Humanities Festival. Get tickets and more information.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
