Tracing HistoryJalena Keane-Lee: A Chinese American filmmaker invites her mother on a journey of self-discovery and reclamation as they tour the railroad sites built by their ancestors six generations ago.

FortuneShirley Yumeng He: Through an embodied camera eye that moves freely in the in-between place that is an alley connecting two streets, the film evokes a sense of magical realism which gives texture to the meditation on the Chinese-American identity, which can also be characterized as a liminal space.

HeadshotDominic Yarabe: A meditative essay film ruminating on image-making and the historically fraught relationship that Black Americans have with the camera and the land.

BiopixelsKristina Dutton: Shot at two cutting-edge research labs which specialize in the evolution of butterflies and moths, Biopixels is a short film exploring the world of evolutionary biology on the microscopic scale.
