As part of After School Special: The 2022 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a screening of the Peabody Award-winning documentary Mayor (2020), followed by a Q&A with the film’s director (and also producer, editor, cinematographer, and composer!), SVA alumnus David Osit (MFA 2011 Social Documentary Film).

Synopsis: A look at the life of Musa Hadid, the charismatic mayor of Palestinian city Ramallah, who aspires to lead the city into the future.
