Shorts from the New School with Caveh Zahedi and Laurie Collyer
UnionDocs (322 Union Ave., Brooklyn)
6:00pm – Narrative Shorts.
8:00pm – Personal Documentaries.
Join us for an evening of two programs featuring original and creative shorts made by students from the New School.
The first program, “The First Cut is the Deepest,” presents narrative shorts by students of Laurie Collyer’s senior seminar.
The second program includes shorts made by Caveh Zahedi’s students. Zahedi is an independent filmmaker best known for his autobiographical films (I Am A Sex Addict, Tripping With Caveh, In the Bathtub of the World) who also teaches a documentary shorts class at the New School in which students are asked to make a film every week on a given topic. “Everything is Personal” showcases the work of his students. All of the films are approximately 3 minutes long, and all of them were made in 2012.
