Benjamin Ogrodnik’s research lies at the intersection of film and the visual arts. His dissertation investigates experimental filmmakers from Western Europe, Latin America, and North America who have interrogated the "vérité" tradition of documentary film. He is interested in how contemporary artists and filmmakers have transformed documentary theory and technique through their practices within the broader sphere of "art cinema."
