A collage of short films led by theatre director Rebekah Maggor and filmmakers Jeffrey Palmer and Youngsun Palmer

The nine shorts open windows onto the tumultuous lives of students scattered across the globe—from Ithaca to Iowa City, and Beijing to Novosibirsk—as they struggle with economic hardship, social distancing, depression, and political upheaval catalyzed by pandemic.
This project is funded in part by the Cornell Council for the Arts.
