Prof. Kelly Anderson’s film UNSTUCK: an OCD kids movie and the premiere of Jay Chieh-Chun Lee’s film Involuntary Repetition as Everyday Life (made in Prof. Michael Gitlin’s Microcultural Incidents Class). A panel discussion will follow after the screening. This will also be relevant for students interested in crafting distribution campaigns that prioritize community engagement in non-traditional settings, including robust social media engagement.

As part of OCD Awareness Week 2019, the Hunter College Department of Film and Media Studies presents:

How a Film Helped Heal, Build Community and Challenge Stereotypes

Featured Films:
UNSTUCK: an OCD kids movie
Involuntary Repetition as Everyday Life
Panel discussion with OCD experts & filmmakers 

Since it premiered in 2017, UNSTUCK: an OCD kids movie has been used in hundreds of therapists’ offices, community settings and classrooms to raise awareness about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, build community, and help kids and families dealing with OCD.

This free OCD Awareness Week event will answer your questions about OCD and explore the many ways films and associated social media campaigns can have an impact and find a distribution life far outside traditional venues like film festivals. 

Involuntary Repetition as Everyday Life is a new short film by Jay Chieh-Chun Lee (Integrated Media Arts MFA program).
