19: An Episodic Documentary

The Theatre and Dance students of Fresno City College navigate “distance learning” during a pandemic; facing challenging work situations, immunity issues and shifting home environments, all while trying to continue on their path of artistry.  

“19” is a time capsule documentary of Fall 2020, exposing all aspects of living in this moment of the pandemic as artists and students. These stories fully embrace the life of college students, which impacts their ability to be in school and infuses life and art as they blend to become a story of self-discovery.  
  
Episodes will be filmed and air August-December 2020. More information to come!
