CAMS Seniors are presenting their Comps each followed by a short Q&A as follows:

9:00-9:30 am -- Ashley Shaw on "A Day in Memory" -- What happens if we take the time to listen?  How can the way we hear inspire the way we see the world?  'A Day In Memory,' a sonic and visual installation, explores these questions.

9:30-10:00 am -- Giancarlo Danno  "Del Fuego: Social Commentary through Grindhouse" -- The story of a young Latina, Rosalinda, taking on a cult leader bent on using an Elder God to destroy the world. This grindhouse-esque film uses subversion of Hollywood genre rules in order to comment on the current role of immigration and race relations in America.

10:00-10:30 am -- Felicity Flesher on "Colt" -- a short historic drama film based on the true story of famed gunmaker Samuel Colt and his murderous brother John on the day of John's execution.

10:30 to 11:00 am -- Short Coffee Break

11:00-11:30 am -- Grace Zahrah on "The Same Face"  Shot in Lebanon, the summer of 2013, The Same Face explores familial relations and memory of place through two sister's storytelling.

11:30-Noon -- Griffin Johnson on "Vampire Blues: Realism in a Fake World"  a brief overview of how postwar and contemporary film theorists and critics have dealt with the way film presents reality.
