Documentary filmmaker Eric Stange will visit UNE on Tuesday, November 17, 2009.  He will begin the day with a conversation about film in Marcil 323 at 9:30 am.  At noon in the St. Francis Room, he will show video clips from past productions, will talk about his up-coming movie concerning the fall of the Berlin Wall, and will answer audience questions.  Pizza will be served at this event on a first come, first fed basis.

Eric Stange is one of the most notable and talented documentary filmmakers of his generation.  His historical-themed movies include two parts of the massive four-hour PBS production The War that Made America (http://www.wqed.org/tv/specials/the-war-that-made-america/), A Murder at Harvard (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/murder/), and Brother, Can you Spare a Billion? (http://www.pbs.org/jessejones/) among others.  Non-historical movies include the award winning Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick (http://www.unnaturalcauses.org/) and A Day in the Life of the Jeremiah E. Burke about a computer magnet school in Dorchester, MA. 

Stange is currently completing two films.  The first is The Fall of the Wall, a two-hour documentary that includes interviews with President George H.W. Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, James A. Baker, former German government officials, and many other notable figures.  The second is Japan’s Secret Super Sub, a film about one of the best-kept secrets of World War II, a Japanese plot to bomb the Panama Canal using submarine-launched aircraft.
