Class Passions Drive Film Club Creation

SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL STUDIES–As the fall semester of 2020 came to a close at CUNY SPS, the students and instructor of the “New York Stories: The City in Film & Media” course were left with a sense that their conversation was beginning.

“We didn’t want it to end,” explained Nori Perez, a former student of Professor Elizabeth Alsop’s course. Perez, along with classmate Joseph Caffrey, now serves as co-president of a club to discuss its proper extension. Through the faculty sponsorship of Alsop, along with Associate Director of Student Life Anthony Sweeney, the CUNY SPS Film Club came into being last month.
