Join Us to Celebrate the Films of
SVA's MFA Social Documentary Film
Class of 2020
Department Chair Maro Chermayeff says, “these filmmakers inspire and amaze us—especially as they began their films before the pandemic and finished them in newfound isolation.”
The Thesis Showcase exhibits the work-in-progress documentaries of Veronique Engel, Adam Evans, Catherine Finsness, Yuby Hernandez, Keliang Li, Hansen Lin, Oxana Onipko, Rohan Rao, Reed Smith, Ben Wang, Shuming Zhang, Zooey Zhang, and Weixin Zhuang. Class of 2020 graduates not screening their films include Mark Crowell, Jamie Deredorian-Delia, Shiqin Gao, Ao Li, and Cheng Yang.
In addition to the online screenings, SocDoc hosts live Q&A events with the filmmakers, SocDoc faculty, and special guests, as well as a Filmmakers Reception on Saturday, April 2 in a unique online location.
Take a look at galleries.sva.edu/socdocshowcase10 for more details on each of the films, and at the Showcase Trailer, edited by Caroline Berler (SocDoc Class of 2017)
Screenings are free and open to the public; RSVP required.
