2021 Cinematic Arts Student Film Showcase

While movie industries worldwide have been shuttered for the past year, the students and instructors of Cinematic Arts have been cranking out some truly wonderful work. This program, culled from a rich list of faculty-nominated submissions and assembled by the Screen/Society programming team, is comprised of soul-searching narratives that lean hard into the pleasures and perils of the Dionysian college experience; experimental docs that make stirring interventions into real-world public spaces (remember those?); and a suite of films that explore intergenerational communion in preternaturally sensitive ways.

Includes works by the following student filmmakers (in alphabetical order):

John Ball '21 - "Train"
Sarah Derris '21 - "umrah"
Anya Dombrovskaya '21 - "Sasha"
Andy Ju '21 - "A Sweet Rendezvous in Almaden"
Emily MacDiarmid (Grad '22) - "If Tomorrow Comes"
Ife Presswood (Grad '21) - "AND she resisted"
Sophia Rivadeneira '23 - "Downtown"
Omolola Sanusi '21 - "The Frontline of the Narrative"
Jordan Shapiro '21 - "Drowning in Something Viscous"
Nick Turecky '21 - "Durham Then & Now"
