Notes from the Field
Film Director Kristi Zea
IN THIS TIME OF CRISIS AND SOUL SEARCHING...
it has become more important than ever to experience Anna Deavere Smth's tour de force performance in NOTES FROM THE FIELD.
I had the privilege to direct Anna's riveting performance which confronts the racial injustice in our country that no one of good conscience can ignore.
On HBO's web page for NOTES FROM THE FIELD, you can watch the trailer and an interview with Anna and me.
With HBO NOW (the HBO streaming app) or HBO GO (comes with your cable subscription or Amazon Prime), I invite you to experience the power and inspiration of NOTES FROM THE FIELD.
"...stage-to-screen adaptation of Anna Deavere Smith’s "Notes from the Field" stars her alone playing a multitude of personalities...[and] paints a troubling picture of class
and race in modern America."
"...an effective pulse-taking documentary..."
"This is not your father’s or even your
older sibling’s documentary..."

A love poem to his late wife Elizabeth Murray by poet-performer Bob Holman
A Film by Kristi Zea
In TALKING PICTURES, poet performer extraordinaire Bob Holman, founder of the legendary Bowery Poetry Club, is inspired by an exhibition of the supremely individualistic, off-the-wall paintings of his late wife, Elizabeth Murray. His performance bridges the relationship between poetry and painting, and asks the question, if paintings could talk, would they speak poetry?
Directed by Oscar and Critics Choice nominee Kristi Zea (EVERYBODY KNOWS... ELIZABETH MURRAY, NOTES FROM THE FIELD) with music by Oscar nominee, David Lang, and edited/arranged by Charles Caster-Dudzick. TALKING PICTURES is produced by Bowery Art + Sciences.
