Please join us for a screening of eight documentary short films from first-year MFA students in the Documentary Film & Video Program. Q&A with filmmakers and reception to immediately follow the screening. 

Bottled Up by Ma’ayan Porat | Fathers navigate the depths of parenthood, while emotionally overwhelmed.

a fish is a metaphor by Zach Ben-Amots | Stanford University was founded on an ideology of eugenics that led to real harm for thousands of Californians. Today, that legacy is stored in the archives.

Back in the Holster by Yue Wu | Despite traditionally low gun ownership rates among the Asian American community, the pandemic saw a 43% increase in purchases, driven by experiences of racism and anti-Asian hatred. Will tragedy persist as they turn to guns as a solution?

Universitas and undercommons by Pamela Martinez | A tower of ideological domination surveils undercommons proposing: is a third university possible?

field notes I took while looking for by Elisa Leiva Anderson | The shared histories between pesticides and tear gas appear through the dissection of unsuspecting California strawberries.

Will you see this by Yuxuan Ethan Wu | The filmmaker gave his friend a DV camera and through intimate exchanges of voice recordings, she started to encounter herself behind the camera.

70¢/hr by Sofia Stærmose Hardt | Watchtowers and a distant sound of birds. The ground is burning. They start the engine.

квітень, when the first trees flower by Alem Kent | A ritual and ingredients that link to a distant home. A dance found within the rhythm of a ghost kitchen.
