On Tuesday, February 7, Ms. Courtney Bent hosted the 9th installment of St. Sebastian’s Faculty Seminar Series in front of a live audience in the Burke Family Center and a virtual audience on Zoom. A member of the St. Sebastian’s Faculty since 2016, Ms. Bent is a Colgate University graduate with degrees in Philosophy and Religion. At an early age, Bent craved to go places that were foreign to her with the desire to understand the varied experiences of people throughout the world. Today, Ms. Bent is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker whose work has taken her from the Masai Camps in East Africa to maximum security prisons in the United States. She is the recipient of over 30 awards and grants for her work. In this dynamic presentation, Ms. Bent shared her journey from photographer to filmmaker and ultimately, advocate for the disabled in “Shooting Beauty,”an eight-time Audience Award winning documentary film about a photography program Courtney started at United Cerebral Palsy of Metro Boston.
