Posted March 10, 2022 at 2:43 pm by

Spring Street Inter­na­tion­al School’s vir­tu­al spring speak­er series returns start­ing this Tues­day, March 15 from 6 to 7 p.m.

In the first of five ses­sions between March 15 and April 21, Joe Van Eeck­hout of the Spring Street class of 2006 will dis­cuss his jour­ney as a cin­e­matog­ra­ph­er and film­mak­er. Joe describes his expe­ri­ence this way:

Raised between Wyoming, Wash­ing­ton, and Alas­ka, the Amer­i­can West is where he draws most of his inspi­ra­tion. After spend­ing near­ly a decade on the East Coast of the USA and three years based in East Africa, he returned to the West. Joe seeks to tell impact­ful, char­ac­ter-dri­ven sto­ries about rur­al Amer­i­ca and the issues faced by its communities.

Joe has been behind the cam­era for mul­ti­ple doc­u­men­tary films and recent­ly he has worked on projects for Chums, Hulu, HBO Doc­u­men­taries, Nat Geo Docs, The New York Times, VICE, and more.

Joe’s expe­ri­ence spans from brand­ed pro­duc­tion to non-fic­tion tele­vi­sion, to doc­u­men­tary news and film. He has worked both domes­ti­cal­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly, recent­ly work­ing abroad in India, Philip­pines, Demo­c­ra­t­ic Repub­lic of the Con­go, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Somalia.

Advance reg­is­tra­tion is required to receive the Zoom link for the March 15 pre­sen­ta­tion.
