Upcoming Events

Rujanee MahakanjanaThe CSN Speaker Series continues on Sunday, October 9th when our guest speaker will be filmmaker Rujanee Mahakanjana -- a director, managing partner at Nebula Creatives, as well as the founder of the Shortcut 100 International Film Festival. Rujanee was born to a Thai family in Bangkok but has been living and working in Chicago for over 20 years. After completing her M.F.A. in Studio Art from Northern Illinois University, she has worked on a wide range of projects, from short videos to long-form film productions while teaching at colleges downtown. Her work contains thought-provoking existential statements, metaphors, and symbolism, as well as quirky humor. Her background in architecture has given her a firm foundation of an inside-out, physical and psychological meaning of "space" in her visual work.
