The 2021 recipient of the FSC Fulton Fellowship, Eduardo “Teddy” Williams will be joining us to discuss his feature, The Human Surge, as well as a curated program of shorts, including his latest work, Parsi.
Eduardo Williams (b. 1987, Argentina) studied at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires, before joining Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains in France in 2012. Williams’ shorts films Pude ver un puma (2011) and Que je tombe tout le temps? (2013) premiered at Cinéfondation and Director’s Fortnight at Cannes Film Festival, followed by Tôi quên rồi! (2014) which had it’s premiere at FID Marseille. His first feature, El auge del humano (2016), won the Pardo d’oro for Best Film at Filmmakers of the Present at the 69th Locarno Film Festival and was later shown at Toronto International Film Festival – Wavelengths, New York Film Festival – Projections, Tate Modern and other festivals. In 2016 he directed Allons-y! (45’) for the Festival de l’image en mouvement Hors Pistes at Centre Pompidou. In 2019 he received the Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists. His last short film Parsi (2018) was produced by the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève for the Biennale de l’image en Mouvement 2018 and premiered at Berlinale – Forum Expanded, it was shown at Tate Modern, Julia Stoscheck Collection, Lincoln Center and other festivals and museums.
This spring, the FSC will be hosting (remotely) a series of visiting filmmakers as part of our Nonfiction Workshop. Invited filmmakers will circulate links to their films in advance so that we can watch them on our own, and we will get together as a group to have a conversation about their work. As many of these works are in progress or yet to be released theatrically, we have limited capacity in terms of the number of participants we are able to accommodate. If you are interested in attending (and are not currently a FSC fellow or CMP student), please email Cozette Russell.
