What is the Sound of a Pig Dancing?
An evening’s exploration of the use of sound and music in film from Edison to the New Wave.
Jeff Hinkelman has taught courses on general film history, East Asian film, and film and race, and guest lectured in the Art and History departments. His dissertation involved films dealing with the First World War made between the Armistice and the active enforcement of the Production Code, and he is especially interested in early cinema, Asian cinema and pre-1950 studio filmmaking around the world. For many years he has managed the Hunt Library Video Collection and maintained an active involvement in various film-related activities across campus. Recent projects include a number of articles related to his dissertation work, a series of podcasts, and regular postings on his film-centered blog (www.whatpriceglory.wordpress.com). What is the Sound of a Pig Dancing explores the use of sound and music in film from Edison to the New Wave.
