Healing is a music video directed and produced by Guadalupe Campos '22 BFA Film/Video in collaboration with local Queer Peruvian singer-songwriter, Anaís Azul. The music video Healing follows a pink chair throughout the city of Boston from locations as intimate as Anaís’ home to places as public as the Orange Line. Healing is a long and painstaking process but something that is not done alone or with out a great reward.
Handmade film and digital video
A walk through the city and a walk down memory-lane, "Shoots and Ladders" is inspired by the colorfulness of childhood play and the somewhat dreariness of reality.
"Shoots and Ladders" is a silent film that was showcased on the Marquee at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Ryan's film "Broken" is the final project he did for the summative elective "Imagining Others: from Strangers to Cyborgs" in Spring '17. In "Broken", Ryan reflected on his own and his family's bilingual and bicultural background, using a speculative, science fiction lens. His inspiration for this work was the poetry collection "Cannibal" by Safiya Sinclair, which was read in class.
