For Anna Fitch & Banker White (AIR ’19), filmmaking is a social act. The duo regard the subjects of their documentaries as collaborators—a unique relationship that ultimately pushes both parties beyond their comfort zones and creates something wholly different than what would have been possible individually. During their residency, Fitch & White will be working on their multiplatform documentary Heaven Through the Backdoor. Told through the stories of Yolanda Shae, a close friend of the filmmakers’, the film blends intimate documentary footage with cinematic interpretations to explore the emotional complexities surrounding death of those closest to you, and of facing one’s own mortality.

Project Space is located on the third floor of Building 944 and is currently accessible only by stairs.
