Class Film, Reporter, Premieres at BAM

Reporter, the project of the November 2007 6-week class, will be screening at BAM this Friday as part of BAMcinemaFEST. The documentary, directed by Eric Metzgar, follows Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof through the Democratic Republic of Congo as he tries to put the country's crises on the international radar. Eric Kohn of indieWIRE writes, "With a series of gorgeous, frequently haunting sequences, Metzgar captures the wide-ranging responses of struggling Africans presented with Kristof and his trusty notepad... Metzgar captures the full complexity of the inherent drama." TEC Alums, Daniel Rosen and Bo Mehrad were the associate editor and additional editor, respectively, on the film. It premiered at Sundance in January and this will be its New York premiere.
