Aberystwyth MA graduate publishes in Film International

29 September 2017

Martin Smith, who graduated from Aberystwyth University in 2015 with an MA in Film Studies, has just published one of his course essays in the journal Film International. The article, entitled ‘Mortality Salience: Stan Brakhage’s The Act of Seeing With One’s Own Eyes’, was written for the module From Avant-Garde to Documentary, which introduces students to experimental forms of documentary filmmaking. The film is no easy watch: shot in a morgue in Pittsburgh, USA, it depicts actual autopsies in graphic detail.  

Martin is currently studying for a PhD in horror audiences at Northumbria University.
