Friday, May 17th: Shorts from The New School

Shorts from The New School
UnionDocs (322 Union Ave., Brooklyn)
6 & 8pm
$9 suggested donation

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 personal docs 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 personal doc class at the New School in which students are asked to make a film every week on a given topic. “32 Short Films about 8 Things” showcases the work of his students. All of the films are approximately 3 minutes long, and all of them were made in 2012.
