March 26….An Evening With Documentary Filmmaker Scott Thurman - Texas Tech School of Art proudly presents an evening with award winning documentary filmmaker Scott Thurman. The event is free and open to the public. Mr. Thurman will introduce and screen his recent film THE REVISIONARIES, for which he received the Jury’s Special Prize at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival and the 2014 DuPont Award, which honors excellence in broadcast and digital journalism in the public service, and is administered by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. THE REVISIONARIES was also the winner of the most recent Independent Lens Audience Award, and aired on PBS earlier this year. This film follows the fifteen members of the Texas State Board of Education who influence what is taught to the next generation of American children. The theory of evolution and a re-write of US history are caught in the crosshairs when an unabashed creationist seeks re-election as chairman of America's most influential board of education. Shot over the course of three years, director Scott Thurman gained unique access to the Texas Board of Education, America’s most influential, where a few citizens are fighting a battle to shape the course of American education through the revision of public school textbooks. Viewers see both sides of the debate, meeting key players, and witnessing them tangle over critical issues like evolution.Scott Thurman was born in Lubbock and reared in Amarillo. He received a BFA from Texas Tech School of Art and a Masters in documentary filmmaking from the University of North Texas in Denton. Thurman currently lives in Austin. This fall he will teach at Gordon College in Massachusetts as a tenure track assistant professor in documentary filmmaking. English Lecture Hall 01 on the Texas Tech Campus; 7 p.m.
