As part of After School Special: The 2017 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a special free evening dedicated to bringing visibility to the disability community. The event will feature three documentary screenings, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

The Blind, Seen (2016) is the autobiographical story of photographer David Snider (BFA 1992 Photography) and his blind parents. Anelisa Garfunkel’s (MFA 2016 Visual Narrative) We Will Ride (2016), being given its theatrical premiere, follows disabled riders fighting for public transportation improvements in Boston. Finally, the NYC premiere of the feature documentary Tin Soldiers (2015), by Ben Duffy (Film and Video) & Michael J. Sassano (BFA 2011 Film and Video), highlights members of the adaptive sports community.  The Q&A will be moderated by current student Wega Chen (BFA 2018 Design).

The films shown at this event are not rated by the MPAA, and some material may be inappropriate for children under the age of 8. Children under the age of 3 may not be admitted.

…. And come early to enjoy virtual reality and music video experiences in the lobby.
