When the Lights Go Out, a collaboration between Ruth and her documentary class.
Ruth Gregory is a filmmaker and academic working in the Pacific Northwest. While her work incorporates many genres of film and media, she primarily identifies herself as a documentary filmmaker with experimental tendencies. At the core of her creative practice Ruth is interested in telling stories from an unique perspective – what hasn’t be said or shown before? Whose stories are absent from the cultural landscape?
Her interest in distinctive media narratives also translate to her academic work. Ruth’s scholarship is rooted in the ideological frameworks of Cultural Studies and Feminism. Her primary focus tends to be inquiries into the representation of women and people of color in the media and how assumptions about these groups are embedded in the way that academics write and talk about media.
