On March 7, our friends at BRIC will be screening films produced during the 2017 BRIC Documentary Intensive Cohort. BRIC’s 2017 Documentary Intensive cohort learned the ins and outs of making a short, compelling film.
Each filmmaker will screen their documentary, followed by a special Q & A session with the audience. Screening will include the works of: Abdalla Hassan, Alfonso Siverls, Alice Obar, Astrudge Mclean, Farideh Sakhaeifar, Gregori Romenski, Hima B, Lyndon McCray, Meg Teckman-Fullard, Desire Wandan, Niko David, Pei Fong ‘Mol Mol’ Kuo and Phyllis E. Roker. Hosted by BRIC Media Education Specialist, Liam Billingham.
The topics of this year’s films include: a formerly homeless librarian now running a program in his library for the homeless, a dance documentary about the 1988 gassing of Halabja in Southern Kurdistan, the struggle of being an ‘alien of extraordinary ability (O-1 immigrant visa holder in the USA), feral cat colonies, and many more.
