In The Press: Dawn Schwartz in indieWIRE

February 28, 2011

In a recent feature in indieWIRE, writer Bryce J. Renninger discusses current MFA Social Documentary Film Department student Dawn Schwartz‘s film Strings:  A YoYo Documentary. Following six yo-yo players as they prepare, travel to and experience the 2010 World Yo-Yo Contest, Schwartz says, “While some consider yo-yoing a sport and some consider it more of an art, the community today is creating new tricks and adding new dimensions, forming a truly dynamic and exciting culture. I wanted to create a character-driven film, giving viewers an inside look into an unseen vibrant community.”

Schwartz’s film is one of several projects featured on SVA’s new curated Kickstarter page.
