Lorentzen, an Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, will host workshops and visit classes throughout the semester as Documentarian-in-Residence. His work as a director and cinematographer includes one of Netflix’s most-watched original series, “Last Chance U.”
The event is funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon “Writing in Place” initiative and a gift by alumna Sue Douthit O’Donnell.
