Please join the School of Cinema in congratulating recent MFA graduate, David de Rozas, on his amazing thesis film, Give, which has been racking up major festival play!

Visions du Reel just made public the festival line up including David de Rozas’ film:

Give has also been selected to participate in other top world doc fests which will be made public shortly!


Give Synopsis:

"Challenging traditional documentary practices with experimental approaches to editing and sound, GIVE explores Roland Gordon’s motivations to create a monumental visual archive displaying centuries of black agency and achievements, in the United States and beyond.

Roland’s collage, ‘Cloud of Witnesses’, is comprised of thousands of photographic portraits, newspapers, and magazines cutouts, presenting an alternative visual history to empower the black community. The film explores collective representations of history, memory, and culture; where pasts, presents, and futures are modeled by the blending of imagination, facts, and love."
