Season 2 Episode 11 – Robin Starbuck – Artist and Filmmaker
Robin Starbuck‘s “The Flight of a Bird Does not Scar the Sky” is an official selection and a film that was screened in The Experimental Film Fest 2021. Robin is an artist, filmmaker, professor of Experimental Film and Animation, and the current Chair of Filmmaking & Moving Image Arts at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY.
An award-winning filmmaker and artist who produces experimental nonfiction films, installations, and animated media for theatre and opera, Starbuck employs a mixture of documentary and reflexive film styles in her work. By working in a nontraditional form, she strives to create a cinematic space in which the world is perceived rather than known. In response to her work, viewers are invited to interact with what they see on the screen and to create meaning by reflecting on their own experiences, ideas, and truths.
She has exhibited works at the Boston Center for the Arts, The Walker’s Point Art Center, Milan Biennale, Indie Open in New York City, Anthology Film Archives, Deluge Contemporary Art & Antimatter, Collected Voices Chicago, XVI Cine Pobre Cuba, the Madrid Film Festival, the Ethnograpfia Film Festival in Paris, The Stockholm Experimental and Animation Film festival, and other festivals, art centers, and galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Most recently, her film, How We See Water, was nominated for four international documentary awards at the X Short Film Festival in Rome. Starbuck is currently an active member of the Women in Animation Association.
