          Walt Whitman’s legacy—iconoclast, celebrity, and the father of American poetry—is unparalleled in its influence on American writing and culture. David Haven Blake and Michael Robertson, professors of English at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and co-editors of Walt Whitman, Where the Future Becomes Present, discuss the impact that Whitman has had on American culture—an impact that reaches far beyond his influence on poetry.

            • Two Zero Six


              from Shaz Fard Added 41 0 0

              The film was a project that deals with a certain time in history within the American culture. Two Zero Six re-tells the story of the serial killer Ted Bundy who lured his victims via a hotline in Seattle during the early seventies. It documents his approach of objectifying and sexualizing Females, portraying his dark sexual visions without giving too many clues away. It’s a film where a conversation is taking place yet we can’t hear it. So it has to be looked at frame by frame where the clues are embedded within the imagery that give hints to its meaning. Co-Directed by Shaz Fard and Simon Morgan Joseph Kerrigan Emily Smith

                    This is my first documentary from 2001, which I co-directed with my friend Ryan Fenson-Hood. Two young men, an american and an european meet in film school and become friends. They see that Europe and the rest of the world is heavily influenced by the US. They see that the influence doesn't come from the real america, but from a contorted one which is displayed through the media. In attempt to offset this, they set off on a road trip through the American west to take an honest look at America and show this through a documentary film. The movie is very straight forward. The filmmakers tell the story of their trip and everywhere they stop, they interview americans of all different backgrounds. They ask one very simple question, "What do you think of America?". Unexpectedly the last day of their trip turned out to be September 11th 2001.
