Professor Jenny Vogel's work featured at Dallas VideoFest

UNT professor Jenny Vogel's work We Love Germany: Thanks For Everything will be screened at the Dallas VideoFest on Friday, Sept. 24, 2010, 8:30 p.m. in the Video Cafe.

"Sri Lanka National Handball Team Disappears in Germany," was reported a small blurb on CBS News. Most surprised were the people of the small village of Wittislingen in Germany, who hosted the Sri Lankan team for a local tournament. After the match the Sri Lankans disappeared and were nowhere to be found. A brief inquiry yielded that a Sri Lankan national handball team never existed, and that the rather well-organized scam enabled twenty-three illegal immigrants to obtain European Union visas.

In We Love Germany: Thanks For Everything Jenny Vogel deals with the aftermath of the incident, as she presents the story from the point of view of the villagers of Wittislingen.

The 23rd Annual VideoFest will be at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas, TX, Sept. 23-26, 2010. The oldest and largest video and film festival in the nation, VideoFest shows a diverse range of works by regional, national and international video and film artists that are hard to find at the local video store, the movie theater, or on Netflix. Because VideoFest is different than a traditional film festival or just going to a movie, expect something different! For the third year in a row, the VideoFest will be presented thru I-Tunes. VideoFest is presented by Video Association of Dallas.
