|Archaeological documentary released|
The Pyla-Koustopetria Archaeological Project and PatrowVisual announce the release of their newest archaeological documentary, "Emerging Cypriot." The project is a collaboration between William Caraher, assistant professor of history and director of the Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project, and Josiah Patrow, who received his M.A. at UND in 2005 and is currently working in the film industry in Los Angeles.
"Emerging Cypriot" is a series of short documentary films which serve as a sequel to the award-winning documentary, "Survey on Cyprus," which premiered in Grand Forks in 2006 and has been shown nationally. "Emerging Cypriot" provides an unprecedented look into the day-to-day workings of a small archaeological project on the island of Cyprus. All aspects of archaeological life are shown from the excitement of discoveries to the stresses and aggravations of living and working together. Patrow is particularly skilled at capturing the comic aspects of the serious business of archaeological research without obscuring the project’s conspicuously academic goals.
Each week a new Emerging Cypriot documentary short will be released at http://www.und.nodak.edu/instruct/wcaraher/Emerging_Cypriot.html. The shorts are accompanied by brief commentaries available on Caraher’s blog: http://mediterraneanworld.typepad.com/the_archaeology_of_the_me/emerging_cypriot/index.html
