Film Stylo: Student Films from the Pandemic - New Haven and Hong Kong
Over the past months, students in New Haven and Hong Kong have been simultaneously participating in a stay-at-home filmmaking initiative called Film Stylo, which guides them to create short films about their experiences during the pandemic.
In this online event, 6 student films made across the globe but under similar circumstances will be screened in pairs. Join organizer Jeremy Hung (2020 HKETONY Arts Activator) and Dr. Eunice Yuen for a discussion on how the initiative aims to promote intercultural empathy and emotional wellness through filmmaking.
