Jeff Heinzl

Biography

Jeff Heinzl works on the emergence and circulation of visual and narrative styles, which has led him to write about hip-hop music video, contemporary global arthouse cinema, and the long-take aesthetic as it appears in the work of, for instance, Lisandro Alonso, Nabil Elderkin, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. He graduated from Furman University with a B.A. in English and taught high school English for a year before beginning the program at Pitt. He also has spent the last several summers teaching gifted high school and middle school students through Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth program.
