Student Awards and Recognitions
Film Studies student Sage Yockelson’s short film “I Am A Weapon” is being screened at the Transgender Film Festival at the Roxie Theater on November 13. The film is a hybrid of documentary, narrative, and collage film that explores Sage’s interactions with LGBT culture and history and the urgency with which trans people keep each other alive. The film uses found footage, original footage, and text as a means of both communicating with and responding to the past, while also looking ahead to the future.
Media Studies student Diana Kalaji's audio art piece "Invisible" was selected as part of the Womxn Are Perfect! exhibit in the Mission in San Francisco. The exhibit, including Kalaji's audio experience, will be at the gallery until April 16, 2016.
In the last Roxie Mixtape Screening (a local's only show at the Roxie), 3 of the 10 films were by USF students and alumni.
