Davey Field

Collaborative Fellow 2016 - 2017

I grew up in South Jersey & Vermont, and studied comparative literature at Oberlin College. I made my first movie in 2009 to document a science experiment about my cat. Since then I’ve scurried around trying to undo ethnography in North American counterpublics, including a retirement community, a Yoruba separatist village, and various activist spaces in New York. I’m currently wrapping up my first feature documentary. The next movies I want to make are about psychiatric incarceration and the tranquilization of deviant bodies. For the past year I’ve drawn my inspiration by collaborating with teenagers on essay films at Reel Works in Brooklyn.
