IMA Alumna Laurie Sumie Filiak wins “Best Documentary” at CUNY Festival

2010 IMA Graduate Laurie Sumie Filiak’s thesis film “Struggle for Existence” has won Best Documentary award at the CUNY Asian American Film Festival. The film combines Laurie’s elegant animation and graphics with documentary material to spin a compelling story of a Hawaiian finch on the verge of extinction. Winning qualifies the film for screening the Asian American International Film Festival in July as part of a CUNY Shorts program.
