From Baltimore to London: Karen Yasinsky of Film and Media Studies is featured for her latest projects

As the month of October has just begun, Film and Media Studies professor Karen Yasinsky already has two of her projects prepared for screening. Yasinsky’s short film titled The Man from Hong Kong has been hand-picked for the British Film Institute’s (BFI) 60th Anniversary film festival in London, England. The film will be screening alongside other artists whom are known to “create new interpretations and expose hidden histories”. The film is described as “an atmospheric collage that combines the soundtrack of a Bruce Lee Film with French fashion photography and home movies”. The BFI event Experimenta – “Hollywood Disections” is set for Saturday, October 8th. For more information: BFI – Hollywood Disections

Her second screening, will be featured at the Close-Up Cinema on October 9th. The screening, “No Place Like Home: The films of Karen Yasinsky” is a series of twelve short films that all include animation. Yasinsky will also participate in a Q&A session afterward to discuss her work. For more information: Close-up Cinema Events – No Place Like Home: The Films of Karen Yasinsky
