The Digital Filmmaking program and the Fashion program at Stephens teamed up last night to present “Men of the Cloth,” a documentary film focusing on three Italian master tailors. Filmmaker Vicki Vasilopoulo joined the audience for a Q &A as part of the Citizen Jane Film Series.
“We’ve been looking for more films that lend themselves to collaboration with other programs on campus,” explains Associate Professor Kerri Yost. “With the film series, it’s especially helpful to collaborate with other academic areas because our filmmakers come for several days and can visit classes and share their experiences on a deeper level. It’s all about finding films that complement our curriculum and expand beyond our classroom.
“The idea came from Kirsty Buchanan (an associate professor in the Fashion program) who saw the film at a sold-out showing in New York City. She understood the way the film could work with both our programs and appeal to our Columbia community, too,” continued Yost. More information on the film series can be found at citizenjanefilm.org.
