“Wings of Life”
WRITTEN, DIRECTED AND SHOT BY Louie Schwartzberg
Narration by Meryl Streep
Q&A to follow with Louie Schwartzberg
An award-winning filmmaker whose career spans over 35 years, Schwartzberg is distinguished as a pioneer who transformed 35mm time-lapse photography into an arresting art form made available for the first time to feature films and other content platforms. His stunning nature, aerial and slice-of-life imagery has helped transform films by such directors as Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, Francis Ford Coppola, Paul Haggis and Ridley Scott, including “American Beauty,” “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Crash,” “Erin Brockovich,” “E.T.,” “Independence Day,” “Jerry Maguire,” “Men in Black,” and “Twister.”
As the only cinematographer in the world who has been shooting time-lapse 24/7 continuously for well over three decades, Schwartzberg is a visual artist breaking barriers, connecting with audiences, and telling stories that celebrate life and reveal the mysteries and wisdom of nature, people and places.
This is a free screening supported by the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media.
