05.28.20 – Jean-Paul Kelly's short film to screen as part of We Are One, an online film festival

Next week, as part of We Are One, a 10-day online film festival that will be taking place on YouTube, viewers will have an opportunity to watch Service of the Goods, a 2013 short film by Jean-Paul Kelly, a visual studies lecturer at Daniels.

Service of the Goods will be shown on the festival's YouTube channel on June 4th, starting at 9:45 a.m. EST. The 29-minute experimental short is a critical reimagining of the work of Frederick Wiseman, in which scenes from the legendary American director's documentaries play out in strange and surprising new ways.

In addition to Kelly's short, the We Are One festival will be showcasing numerous other films co-curated by programmers at 21 different film festivals around the world, including the Toronto International Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival, and Cannes. Kelly's short was selected by programmers from the New York Film Festival.

All of We Are One's films are free to watch, but viewers can make donations to support the World Health Organization and local relief partners during the COVID-19 crisis.
