As part of After School Special: The 2016 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a special free screening of the Saturday Night Live documentary Live From New York! (2015), followed by a Q&A with director Bao Nguyen, cinematographer Caleb Heller, and co-editor David Ost (MFA 2011 Social Documentary alumni).  Preceded by a selection of classic TV commercials by Stan Fine (1968 Advertising).  The Q&A will be moderated by current SVA student Chelsi Bullard (MFA 2017 Social Documentary).
Synopsis: Saturday Night Live has been reflecting and influencing life in the United States for over 40 years.  This documentary goes deep inside the cultural phenomenon exploring the laughter that pulses through American politics, tragedy, and popular culture.
Live From New York! is not rated by the MPAA, and some material may be inappropriate for children under the age of 13.  Children under the age of 5 will not be admitted.
…. And come early to enjoy virtual reality and music video experiences in the lobby!
