As part of After School Special: The 2021 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present the NYC Cinematic Premiere screening of Icarus Films’ documentary Ursula von Rydingsvard: Into Her Own (2019), followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, SVA alumnus Daniel Traub (MFA 1998 Photography and Related Media) and the film’s subject, acclaimed sculptor and former SVA faculty member, Ursula von Rydingsvard.  Current SVA student Steven Uccello (MFA 2022 Photography, Video and Related Media) will moderate the Q&A.

Synopsis: The story of a woman’s struggle to overcome the hardship of her upbringing and to follow her calling to become an artist.

Ursula von Rydingsvard: Into Her Own is not rated by the MPAA, and some material may be inappropriate for children under the age of 13. Children ages 12 and under will not be admitted.

Doors will open approximately 30 minutes prior to each screening, and guests can enjoy music videos by Samuel Bayer (BFA 1987 Media Arts) in the lobby while waiting to enter. Bayer, the director behind iconic videos like Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and Green Day’s “American Idiot”, will be present at select After School Special 2021 screenings for brief Q&As preceding the feature films.
