Screening in: Salsify Shorts
Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley began making films together in 1993 with “Half-Cocked”. In 2000 they partnered with David Beilinson forming Rumur- since that time they have made nearly a dozen feature films and countless shorts. They showed their 30 year documentation of protest at Cucalorus last year, “Working In Protest”. Their films “Horns and Halos” and “Battle for Brooklyn” were shortlisted for the Oscar and in 2012 they received a Guggenheim grant.
