Event description:

Lecture by Professor Thomas Jackson


Independent documentary filmmaker Tom Jackson will speak about World War II-era documentary films, focusing on how they influenced subsequent and contemporary American filmmakers. FDR, Stalin, and Hitler recognized early that this new medium of documentary film, along with news reels, were potentially very powerful communication tools. Jackson will show brief segments from classic documentaries and will discuss the stylistic and technical influences that are still used in many productions.


Professor Jackson has traveled to Iraq, Afghanistan, and other war zones, while working in various capacities on

documentaries. In addition to ongoing documentary production, he teaches documentary film-related courses in the Communication Department at the University of New Hampshire.
