School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Output: 1st Year MFA Screening

Ranging from experimental documentary to 3D and 2D experimental animation, these films and videos represent the culmination of a year spent in thought and labor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. These works, produced as first year students in the MFA program, explore themes of loss and displacement, the role of the accordion in Chinese culture, and chance operations. Join us for a screening of works completed and in progress, including a live kazoo soundtrack.
