James Longley wins MacArthur Genius grant!


Holy smokes. Congratulations, James!
James Longley is a Seattle-based documentary filmmaker, though it might be more accurate to call him Northwest-raised, since he’s hardly set foot in the country since a couple years ago when he was here in between completing Iraq in Fragments (and going to the Oscars where it was nominated for Best Documentary) and heading off to Iran and then India to work on a new project.

The Stranger has a nice write up of lauds for James, riddled with all the hotlinks you’d ever need to learn more about him: http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2009/09/22/genius-genius
