Bill Brown (EEUU)Bill has been making first person experimental documentaries since the mid-1990's. His films explore the landscapes of North America.

In his work, he attempts to correlate geographical coordinates with conceptual ones. He is drawn to castaway places: dying cotton towns in West Texas or coal towns in West Virginia. It is in these places, perhaps better than elsewhere, that he believes we can take an inventory of our American dreams and desires, for they're piled up there, derelict, waiting for someone to take possession of them.

Bill is a true believer in the DIY movie tour. Inspired by a roving cinema that has its roots in the Soviet Kino-Trains of the 1920's, as well as the peregrinations of hippy artists in the 1960's and punk rockers in the 1990's, Bill has toured through North America and Europe by car, train, bus, and bike. In the summer of 2006, he set off on the Pedal-Powered Movie Tour, bicycling from Washington, D.C. to Denver with a program of films that addressed migration across the U.S./Mexico border. In 2007, he rolled across France with video artist Sabine Gruffat on a bike/movie tour they called La Cyclo-Cinémathèque.

Bill is currently a lecturing fellow in the Arts of the Moving Image Program at Duke University.
