IMA student Thomas Seymour’s short documentary Artifact will screen on June 1st at Yale University as part of the New Haven Documentary Film Festival.

The documentary subject Jonathan Alexandratos makes the case for why they can be studied similar to artifacts. “These are little things that say big things about us”. When we recreate the human image and then sell it, it says a lot about the society we live in.Artifact will screen as part of the SHORTS BLOCK #2 on Saturday, June 1st at 1:30pm more information at http://www.nhdocs.com/
