Educational Films

My interest in film and video sparked during my studies at Cal State University, Northridge: my early video work was experimental art videos and motion graphics. Then, in the History of Art Education class with Prof. Pistolesi, I wrote a script for my first educational film:

Emile in the 21st Century

Rousseau, or on Education

Exploring the ideas of J-J Rousseau further, I created a feature-length educational documentary for my Master’s thesis. The French version was released in 2012 and shown at the Anniversary of Rousseau in Ermenonville, earning the Medal of Appreciation from the City. The English version was screened at Tarzana Public Library in 2013.

Synopsis: the film explores the misconceptions of J-J Rousseau's educational theories and controversial life events.
