Join Fulbright NY for an evening of films that explore endurance, resilience, and healing. The screening program, which features films by two women filmmakers, will be followed by discussion with some of the filmmakers and film participants, and mental health professionals.
Discussion then continues over networking at Alamo Drafthouse’s House of Wax bar.
Confirmed films include:
- Venus (2010) – by Melissa Hacker (Austria, 2010), 4 minutes, Experimental.
Venus is a silent encounter with the Anatomical Venus, an enigmatic 18th century wax model in the Josephinum Medical Museum in Vienna.
- Joy Street (1995) – by Suzan Pitt (Guatemala, 1989), 24 minutes, Animation.
Screened in 35mm courtesy of Academy Film Archive, in tribute to Suzan Pitt (1943-2019). A woman travels from suicidal despair to personal renewal, with the help of an unlikely spirit guide.
- Exit 12: Moved by War (2019) – Directed by Mohammed Gorjestani, produced by Taylor Feltner and Erick Kwiecien, and featuring Roman Baca (United Kingdom, 2017), 24 minutes, Documentary.
U.S. Marine Roman Baca returned from Iraq ravaged with depression, anxiety and anger — which led him to start Exit12, a dance company that tells stories about the effects of war.
