MDOCS hosts a variety of public events throughout each academic semester. These events are all free and open to the Skidmore community as well as non-Skidmore community members. No RSVP is needed unless otherwise noted.
Due to COVID-19, all of our events this semester will be held virtually.
Tue, Mar 2 @ 8:45pm (Virtual Screening and Q&A)
Online screening of the Oscar-shortlisted doc film 76 Days (2020, 93 min), followed by a discussion with filmmaker Hao Wu. Set deep inside the
frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis in Wuhan, China, the film tells indelible human
stories of healthcare workers and patients who struggle to survive the pandemic with
resilience and dignity.
Film Screening (asynchronous): Sun, Feb 28 – Tue, Mar 2
Q&A with Hao Wu (synchronous): Tue, March 2 @ 8:45PM
Register here to watch the film for free and join the conversation. Upon registration, you will be able to view the film from Sunday, February 28 through Tuesday, March 2. Your registration will also grant you access to the conversation with filmmaker Hao Wu via Zoom on Tuesday, March 2, at 8:45 PM.

This screening is held in conjunction with the Asian Studies/Documentary Studies course 251C-001: the Pandemic Bardo, and is co-sponsored by MDOCS, the Asian Studies Department, and the Tang.
Online Exhibit-Medium Rare
Opens January 2021 - Online
Medium Rare is an installation of creative works (interviews, films, zines, performance, writing)
by students in the Doc Studies fall course Creative Research & Multimedia Expression.
“Creative Research explores the shared fabric uniting the practices of research and creative making, and how these two workflows, when combined, can produce unknown mixtures of multidisciplinary or multi-modal projects. The goal, is to steer [students] away from goal-oriented knowledge-production and towards a cyclical ecology of practice. This online showing is part of that endless cycle of finding and showing, and the work will continue beyond this exhibition.” -Professor Angus McCullough
We hope this digital space offers inspiration as you consider the possibilities for public presentation of creative and academic work during the pandemic.
