Wake Forest screens dance club culture documentary
September 25, 2006
Wake Forest University’s film studies program and communication department will hold a screening of the documentary film “Liquid Vinyl” at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 in the Annenberg Forum (Room 111) in the university’s Carswell Hall. The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with George Reasner, a Wake Forest graduate who co-produced and shot the film. The event is free and open to the public.
The film, which premiered as an official selection at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2005, chronicles the rise of dance club culture in New York City during the 1970s and 1980s, and its subsequent spread across the nation and around the world.
Reasner, who earned a bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest in 1990, holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in producing and cinematography from Florida State University. He has worked in the film industry since 1989, and is a director of photography in Los Angeles. His commercials and short films have won numerous awards and have been screened at several film festivals.
Reasner is also an experienced disc jockey and a music producer. He is part of the Los Angeles-based DJ duo Eskimo Brothers and is signed with the electronic label R-Factor Recordings.
