2019 Susan Tifft Fellow Daphne McWilliams's screening of "In a Perfect World" on Thursday, October 3, at the Full Frame Theater. "In a Perfect World" explores the dynamics of what it means to be a man who is raised by a single mother. The film goes beyond statistics and news reports to create a deeply personal and impressionistic documentary portrait. Daphne and her son Chase will be in attendance. Reception at 6; screening at 7.

The Tifft Initiative at the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) explores the meaningful ways in which documentary approaches and methods can inform, and be informed by, journalism's evolution in the digital era. The Susan Tifft Fellows, the inaugural program of the initiative, are selected from an international pool of women media artists, journalists, and documentarians for a one-week creative residency at CDS.
