Maine Media photography alum Gary Briechle has just published a striking new monograph, Gary Briechle, with Twin Palms Publishers | Twelvetrees Press. Tim Whelan, owner of Tim Whelan's Photography Books located within the Maine Media Gallery, gives it a great review:
Gabriela Bohm Featured at Maine Jewish Film Festival
Maine Media MFA graduate and filmmaker Gabriela Bohm will be presenting her new documentary, In Raquel's Footsteps, at the 16th annual Maine Jewish Film Festival being held March 9-16 in Portland. Bohm's film tells the story of Raquel Liberman, one of more that 30,000 Jewish women who were lured from Europe into Argentinean prostitution rings run by Jewish criminals.
Join us in welcoming Bohm at a reception prior to the screening at the Maine Historical Society, 489 Congress St., on March 14 at 4:15pm. Bohm will also be part of the Women Filmmakers Forum Panel held on March 10 at the Nickelodeon Cinemas, 1 Temple St., Portland, at 11:30am.
