Neslihan Erten

    Class of: 2014, MFA





    Nesli’s interdisciplinary project combining documentary film making with animation, demonstrates a will to combine her dual passions. Inspired to retool the art of animation from an escapist entertainment into a provocative medium of communication, Nesli utilizes her background as a political scientist to tell stories with thought provoking characters and story lines. Her goal is not merely to make film watching fun and entertaining. It is to engage audiences with ideas at a deep level in order to create a space through which they can interact with social/political ideas develop a connection, that in turn, will initiate thoughts of their own.
