Work by new director of digital film center screens at New York Film Festival

Nicolás Pereda, the new head of the Rutgers Center For Digital Filmmaking, screened his latest film, Minotaur, at the New York Film Festival on October 3. The 53-minute film by the Mexican-Canadian filmmaker, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in mid-September, is a surreal portrait of three 30-somethings as they interact in their Mexico City apartment. “Minotaur takes place in a home of books, of readers, of artists,” Pereda says. “It’s also a home of soft light, of eternal afternoons, of sleepiness, of dreams. The home is impermeable to the world. Mexico is on fire, but the characters of Minotaur sleep soundly.”

Meet Pereda and learn more about the Rutgers BFA degree in digital film at the Rutgers Digital Filmmaking Open House on October 17, featuring a student/faculty Q&A, tour, information session, and student film screening.
