"In A Perfect World" Documentary Screening

Thursday, October 3, 2019 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

2019 Susan Tifft Fellow Daphne McWilliams returns to Durham/Duke for a special screening of her film In a Perfect World, which goes beyond statistics and news reports to create a deeply personal and impressionistic documentary portrait of men who were raised by single mothers, and the impact that having absentee fathers had on their lives. Daphne and her son, Chase Myles, who is featured in the film, will be in attendance for a Q&A following the screening. Watch trailer.

6 p.m. reception, 7 p.m. screening; Full Frame Theater, American Tobacco Campus

The Susan E. Tifft Initiative at the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) explores the meaningful ways in which documentary approaches and methods can inform, and be informed by, journalism's evolution in the digital era. The Susan Tifft Fellows, the inaugural program of the initiative, are selected from an international pool of women media artists, journalists, and documentarians for a one-week creative residency at CDS.
