As part of After School Special: The 2019 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a screening of the award-winning documentary A Little Wisdom (2017), followed by a Q&A with director/producer Yuqi Kang, co-cinematographer Paola Ochoa, and co-producer/co-cinematographer Amitabh Joshi, all graduates of SVA's MFA Social Documentary program. The film will be preceded by the TED-Ed short film What Does It Mean to Be a Refugee? by SVA alumna Biljana Labovic (BFA 2001 Animation). The Q&A will be moderated by current student Adam Evans (MFA 2020 Social Documentary Film). Synopsis: See the world through the eyes of five-year-old Tibetan novice monk Hopakuli and share in his joys and sorrows as he endures the rigors of monastic life. A Little Wisdom endeavors to tell a story of children who find happiness through a simple life and the power of imagination. A Little Wisdom is not rated by the MPAA, and some material may be inappropriate for children under the age of 12. Children under the age of 5 may not be admitted. …. And come early to enjoy augmented and virtual reality and music video experiences in the lobby.
