Updated December 8, 2013
A screening of "Beyond Imagining: Margaret Anderson and the Little Review" by Associate Professor Wendy Weinberg will take place on Wednesday, January 8, 2014, at International House Philadelphia (3701 Chestnut Street). The Oscar-nominated and Student Academy Award-winning documentary, which Weinberg created while a graduate student at Temple University, will be screened alongside two other Temple Student Oscar winners, including filmmaker Ben Levin and actor/comedian Bob Saget. The films will be shown on 16mm.
The 30-minute film is about Margaret Anderson (pictured above), who in 1914 founded The Little Review and, fighting against the pressures of censorship and limited funds, introduced readers to the literary works of Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein and James Joyce, among other notables.
Weinberg, who is currently the interim director of the School of Film, is the recipient of the Award for Distinguished Teaching from UArts, one of more than 40 awards she has received for her work in film, video and television. Her work has been included in shows at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts and the Philadelphia Museum of Art; screened theatrically at Cinema Village Theater in New York; aired on PBS stations nationally and internationally; and screened at over 100 film festivals and special events. Weinberg’s films and videos are held in the collections of 70 colleges, universities and libraries nationally and in Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.
