Spanning three decades worth of extraordinary work, the EVC Retrospective Series captures moments in New York’s history through the fresh, but unblinking eyes of emerging teen filmmakers. Two shorts examine the lasting effect of racial and ethnic stereotypes in the media, while a third looks for common ground between African-Americans and Jews following the ’91 riots.
Breaking Through Stereotypes (1994, 15m)
We the People… (1992, 23m)
Blacks and Jews: Are They Really Sworn Enemies? (1992, 30m)
