Kent Bassett ’04

BOX_bassett_kent.jpgKent Bassett ’04 wrote and directed the short film The Line, which has won the American Society of Cinematographers’ Lazlo Kovacs Heritage Award and the Brooklyn International Film Festival’s Spirit Award. A story about a migrant father and son who run out of water while crossing the desert border, The Line is a narrative exploration of the the people and issues that intrigued Bassett about his home state of Arizona. More recently, Bassett climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, the largest free-standing mountain in the world to make Beyond Limits, a documentary film about Bonner Paddock, a man with celebral palsy, who made the eight-day trek to raise money for charity. “This was an incredible journey in challenging conditions of altitude, freezing temperatures, and no electricity,” Bassett says. He currently lives in Los Angeles, where he works as an assistant editor on Bravo’s Top Chef while he sets up a new project.
