Spanning three decades worth of extraordinary work, the EVC Retrospective Series captures moments in New York City’s history through the fresh, but unblinking eyes of emerging teen filmmakers. In this program, three short documentaries examine the critical problems of homophobia in schools and sexual violence against teenage girls and women, as well as the school programs and organizations that are addressing these problems. Post-screening discussions include former EVC youth producers and their EVC instructors, and resources for SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH (SAAM).
* School Screening: PROJECT ENVISION is a collaborative with individuals, families, local businesses, and social service agencies aiming to identify and address community specific needs surrounding sexual violence in the Lower East Side. The collaborative seeks to engage community members in healthy dialogue to explore the myths and norms that perpetuate sexual violence. By normalizing conversations surrounding sexual violence, they hope to be empowered as a community towards sustainable social change. For more information, visitprojectenvisionLES.wordpress.com.

She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and has been recognized for her visual artwork by the National Conference of Artist in Philadelphia for the Artist Legacy Award.
