Work in Progress Screening: Amy Bench's “Things We Left Behind”
Wednesday, August 8
Doors 7:30pm / Screening 8pm
Limited seating by RSVP only
Please join us on Wednesday, August 8 at 8pm for a work-in-progress screening of ICOSA member Amy Bench's latest project, "Things We Left Behind." The 8-minute film will be followed by a short feedback session to provide input on the story and edit before we move to animation.
“Things We Left Behind” is an animated visual diary film of a young immigrant’s experience, recounting memories and objects that connect her to her former life. At 12 years old, Edilsa came to the US as an unaccompanied minor, with nothing save for a plastic bag to protect her from the cold. The film is a story of survival and how the unfolding of memory can propel one beyond insufferable trauma and loss.
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
