Homemade: films from our year in quarantine

Join us on June 4th for a virtual screening!

YR Raw presents “Homemade,” a collection of student videos created during a time of change and uncertainty. These works highlight the experiences of young people during the COVID-19 pandemic — capturing this moment in our history and reflecting on their own lives through spoken word pieces, documentaries, and experimental videos. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with student filmmakers and Audience Choice awards.

Join us June 4, 2021 at 2PM for our screening of Homemade: Films From Our Year In Quarantine. Register here in advance!

YR Raw’s Homemade is produced by Francesca Fenzi and Wen Yu. Hosted by Onessa Sharufa and Jalen Black. Design and illustration by Tuesday Bakker. Animation by Neveah Carr.
