Short films and docs from OWS & Occupy CUNY
On Friday, February 3rd at Hunter College, the City University Film Festival (CUFF) will present a screening and discussion of recent short documentaries – and a few more experimental clips – from Occupy Wall St. and Occupy CUNY. Some of the finest and most effective film and media from OWS thus far has come from former and current CUNY filmmakers, and we’ll be presenting a selection of some thoughtful & artfully-made short work from these independent artists and journalists of the 99%.
Films cover the development of OWS & Zuccotti Park, but the focus here will be film and media about Occupy CUNY, student and union responses to recent tuition hikes, and the crisis of public education.
A discussion with directors, shooters and Occupy CUNY organizers will follow. Introduction by CUFF Artistic Director Nick Shimkin, and Martin Lucas, MFA Program Director for Hunter’s Integrated Media Arts track.
