Film and Media BS Graduating Student Film Screenings
May 11 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This Friday, FIT will screen the thesis short films from its first class of students with a Bachelor of Science degree in Film and Media. The ten films include documentary, fictional, and experimental works. Directors Kevin Shepherd and Thomas Younghans will premiere “Wild Hair,” edited by Kiana Macclellan, in which a young man recovering from a suicide attempt spends his time in the company of a sardonic puppet he talks to in an effort to ease his loneliness. Director Rafael Jones will show his “Eden and After III : Poems My Mother Read Me,” a stream-of-consciousness meditation on childhood memories and what post-9/11 America is like for minorities, which draws heavily on events in his own life. “Coaster Queen” is directors Meg D’Elia and Ella Grossbach’s portrait of Shirley Sullivan, an 82-year old New Jersey-bred grandma and roller coaster enthusiast. Come see these and seven others!
The event is free and open to the public.
