My Body is Not Yours by Marie Koury
Smith College – North Hampton, MA
“This short, experimental documentary explores the implications, struggles, and victories that come with having a female body. Through six narratives by people speaking from various spectra of sexuality, race, and gender identity, My Body is Not Yours sheds light on both the individual and unifying aspects of the distinct emotional and physical development that define the female bodied experience. In addition to detailing these intimate insights by way of interview and voice-over, My Body is Not Yours also presents unconventional uses of text, found footage, and other editing techniques that provide a film language in which to ponder how we consume and perceive images of the female body. Contains nudity and light profanity."

The Emotional Dimensions of the James River by Michelle Marquez
Math & Science High School at Clover Hill – Midlothian, VA
“This experimental film provides an emotional roller coaster experience that was musically and visually designed based on a neuroscience research project that correlates a mathematical parameter (fractal dimension) of sounds and images with the selective triggering of emotional states. Enlighten yourself by looking at the world from your personal point of view while dreaming inside your curiosity. Michelle Marquez, a fifteen-year-old scientist and artist, conceptualized, produced and directed this short experimental film in collaboration with Patrick Gregory and music of Lincoln Mitchell. She aims to challenge the traditional division and separation between Science and Art. Her three-year journey in research has revealed the deeply rooted biological connection that the human brain forms with complex images, sounds, and music. Her award winning neuroscience research correlates a mathematical parameter (fractal dimension) of music and/or images with the selective triggering of emotional states. She used her scientific discoveries as a platform to share her dream of finding a place “Where Science Meets Art.” She used drones for aerial photography to capture images with a special camera converted to use Infrared (720 nm). Those images were blended with original music created especially for this film, which was ‘mathematically’ directed by the teenage producer. She is breaking the barrier between Art and Science to create a unique visual and audio experience of time perceptions and emotional dimensions. She invites viewers to ride this emotional roller coaster while dreaming about a place “Where Science Meets Art” at the James River."
