Documentary filmmaker and Corcoran School alumnus Chris Moukarbel, Fine Art BFA ’04, could not have asked for better footage for the opening sequence of his HBO documentary film, Banksy Does New York. The film centers on the impact of Banksy on the city during his month-long residency in October 2013. The film premiered on HBO November 2014 with numerous accolades for its originality because it is almost entirely based on footage generated from New York’s social media landscape.
Corcoran alumnus Sam Corum, Fine Art Photography BFA ’12, watched images of the turmoil unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri, flash across his TV screen. He was shocked by the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, a young black teenager, at the hands of a white police officer. As the protest and the police response escalated, Corum, a military photographer turned freelance photojournalist, felt compelled to document what was clearly history in the making. He packed his cameras, rearranged prior commitments and hopped in his car for the 13-hour drive to St. Louis. Read more about Corum's efforts to find a narrative for Ferguson.
