The power of film to shape our perceptions and open audiences up to new modes of thinking and feeling is truly unparalleled.
“Art is not neutral. It either upholds or disrupts the status quo, advancing or regressing justice.” – adrienne maree brown
Filmmaking is by definition collaborative and interdisciplinary. Although filmmakers at Marlboro pursued their ideas and passions first and learned the skills to develop their craft along the way, any artistic pursuit requires a deep examination of intent and impact. Developing visual literacy and an understanding of historical precedent enabled students to better communicate their ideas to the world, maximizing their impact. Graduating film and video studies students were able to articulate their vision, pitch their creative works, collaborate with others, and thrive as visual artists.
