Join us for celebrity life drawing series capturing the poses of MIFF “celebrities” at CSA. One of the filmmakers we will draw in costume will be Alana Simoes! We anticipate more MIFF guests will come play dress up with us, and we will keep you posted.
Alana Simões is no longer “a filmmaker to watch.” She is a filmmaker who is being watched! And she has a path through South and Central America that, combined with her unique yet sensitive style, has taken her from Brazil, where she was born, to Cuba, where she graduated from Film School (and made some incredible shorts over the years), to Mexico, where she currently lives and both teaches and makes films. As a documentary maker with vision and compassion, her eye and heart are evident in every movie she makes; her film Mi Hermano is a prime example of this visionary approach.
Seasoned and aspiring artists are invited to participate in the life drawing program hosted by common street arts. This program provides a unique opportunity for emerging and established artists to hone their drawing skills in a supportive environment. participants bring their media of choice: charcoal, pastels, paint, clay, etc. and csa provides the chairs, model, and camaraderie.
