For over 30 years, Brooklyn College Television and Radio MFA degree candidates’ television work has been showcased on this series that airs weekly on CUNY TV.

This edition: Drama exploring the ties between life and art, and offers a view of a dance student's life embedded with memories of war. The 30 minute narrative is based on real events, and features documentary footage from the Persian Gulf War, showing a landscape in striking contrast to the glorified images of war broadcast on television. The main character's struggle to learn to live with these images as she tries to find her expression in dance, challenges attempts of justifying the atrocities of war in the name of a good cause.
