Virtual Event

A collage of short films led by theatre director Rebekah Maggor and filmmakers Jeffrey Palmer and Youngsun Palmer
 
Off-Campus/On-Screen: Cornell Life in the Time of COVID-19 is a collage of student-initiated short films, created in collaboration with faculty and production staff in the Department of Performing and Media Arts, Cornell University. The nine shorts open windows onto the tumultuous lives of students scattered across the globe—from Ithaca to Iowa City, and Beijing to Novosibirsk—as they struggle with economic hardship, social distancing, depression, and political upheaval catalyzed by pandemic. 

This project is funded in part by the Cornell Council for the Arts.

This online film screening with live discussion is free and open to the public. Reserve your ticket at schwartztickets.com. A link will be emailed to you prior to showtime.
