The discussion will be followed by a screening and discussion in the Sapphire Room in the E.S. Bird Library at 3:30 p.m.
Morely is one of the judges of the Syracuse International Film and Video Festival, which begins April 29. She was recently nominated for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award for Best New Director for her documentary, “Alcohol Years,” which was produced by Channel 4 in England. Her other films include: “Everyday Something: True Stories From the 21st Century” and “Return Trip.” Morley is also a professor in SU’s DIPA program in London.
