Exemplary films from the Social Documentation M.F.A. cohorts (2021 and 2022) rotate in an exhibition called Frames Per Second. The films document communities, cultures, issues, and individuals who are marginalized in the current landscape of representation, and reveal how the documentarians are working for social transformation. Find more information about the filmmakers here on the Sesnon Gallery website.
