What constitutes cinema? If a filmmaker deliberately rejects the creative norms of her industry, will that industry, in turn, reject her?

UArts sophomore Katie Brown further challenges our notions of entertainment and artistic value with her follow-up to last year’s VHS Tapes of Other People’s Families by abandoning the generally accepted language of cinematic storytelling in favor of a statically shot, long-form anti-narrative.
