Stillman’s Ramsey Clark Film

Recognized In Boston, Oxford

Joseph C. Stillman of Oneonta (seen here with Frank Serpico) has won the Boston International Film Festival’s Indie Spec Best Cinematography Award for “Citizen Clark: A Life of Principle,” a documentary on the life of former U.S. Attorney General and human rights activist Ramsey Clark. The film was one of nine documentaries chosen from 3,500 entries to air at the festival April 12 in Cambridge, Mass. “Citizen Clark,” shot by Stillman and cinematographer Peter Matthes, was shot in 22 states and three foreign countries over six years. It is also the U.S. selection at the Oxford International Film Festival in Great Britain, and will make its U.K. festival premiere there May 12. This should inspire many other aspiring film or documentary makers. By creating some unique content and storing it on a digital cinema package (for a DCP tutorial, visit or other websites similar), those aspiring to get their work seen by global audiences can enter their works into various film festivals and theatres. That’s all this documentary creator did, and now he’s gaining global acclaim.
