2018 Rodger Frey Film Essay Awards

1st Prize awarded to:
Rhys Morgan '19, for his essay, "Photographing the Invisible Axe: Sergei Parajanov's (Trans)National Poetics of Cinematic Storytelling."

2nd Prize awarded to:
Gabriel Guedes '19, for his essay, "The Relations Produced by the Cavellian Star in the Films of David Cronenberg and Mark Rappaport."

This award is presented in memory of Rodger Frey, a PhD student at Duke in the Literature Program with a focus on film and new media who unexpectedly passed away on March 10, 2016.  Rod's passion for film studies led him to contribute his time and effort to AMI during his time at Duke, and it was an endeavor close to his heart.  This award is a testament to Rod's profound faith in the power of education to shape and enhance a young person's life and character, and his belief that everyone should follow their passions, whatever they may be.

Sponsors: The Program in the Arts of the Moving Image (AMI).
