Patricia Zimmermann Publishes Book on International Amateur Film

Patricia Zimmermann, professor of cinema, photography, and media arts, has published Mining the Home Movie: Excavations in Histories and Memories (University of California Press).

Coedited with curator, archivist, and documentary producer Karen L. Ishizuka, Mining the Home Movie is the first international anthology to explore the historical significance of amateur film. The essays combine primary research, archival collections, critical analyses, filmmakers' own stories, and new theoretical approaches regarding the meaning and value of amateur and archival films for visually preserving history.
