Visiting Filmmaker Series: UTUQAQ
New Brunswick Performing Arts Center
The Rutgers Filmmaking Center presents a variety of documentary and narrative features, followed by Q&As with directors. Students participate in stimulating conversations with up-and-coming and established filmmakers at intimate screenings held right on the Rutgers–New Brunswick campus.
UTUQAQ, a film by Iva Radivojević, was produced by the Documentary Film Lab along with a student collaborator, Keeks Rogers, who travelled to Greenland to capture the day-to-day choices of Rutgers-Geography scientists in an extreme environment and produce a short multimedia narrative. On its vast lunar landscape, the main protagonist of the Arctic is Ice. Four visitors arrive one spring to camp on the ice sheet. Aside from them, there is no other life on the horizon. The visitors are scientists who drill ice cores containing decades of climate history. Utuqaq is a planetary story of the Arctic. It speaks in place of Nature, capturing an otherworldly landscape and that which is being lost.
