COLUMBIA — Stephens College will hold two screenings this month to premiere the film projects from the 2011 senior class.
The senior film showcase is an opportunity for the filmmakers to present their projects to the Stephens College and Columbia communities.
It's important for student filmmakers to showcase their works to the audience, said Chad Freidrichs, instructor of film and media at Stephens College.
Students will present short narrative and documentary videos:
- "Testing Room 123" (by Kelsey Eick): An out-of-place student enters a kooky testing world.
- "Un Petit Jour" (by Alie McNeil): How a class of first-grader students at a French charter school spend a day.
- "The Sexy Voice of Reason" (by Lydia Lane): A boy discovers that he cannot continue to lead two lives while struggling with inner demons in the wake of his father's death.
- "Breathe" (by Kayla Kauffman): The film follows Abigail, who discovers the difference between sex and love.
- "Weather The Storm" (by Casey Martin): A young woman pieces her life back together after her father’s death and also finds her true self.
- "Blood, Thread and Tears" (by Samantha Cook): A look at how a fashion collection is constructed and the stressful nature of a seemingly simple process.
- "Moving Ahead" (by Brittany Morgan): Follows a local after-school program and the lives of children in the public housing system in Columbia.
The filmmakers will attend both screenings and participate in Q&A sessions afterward.
