Universal, Unique, Untouched: Bay Area Student Film Festival 2012


Wednesday, October 3, 2012

7:00-9:00pm


Tonight’s program—presenting the work of fourteen gifted college student filmmakers—includes pieces that explore the less-traveled alleys and alcoves of the Bay Area, unearth fleeting images and sounds of memories long untouched, and employ innovative cinematic structures and forms. From the student-crafted improvisations of the recent Occupy Cal protests to the artisanal process of “reborning” lifelike dolls, these videos survey the spaces in between land and sea, living and dying, desire and fear, the past and the future, and ultimately, between the universal and the unique.
