Golden State Stories: Documentaries by Stanford Students

Exhibition Website

California, the Golden State, is home to approximately 39 million people. These short documentary films offer an intimate glimpse into the lives of just a few, including residents of a houseboat community threatened with eviction, a 99-year-old woman who moved from Louisiana to San Francisco during the Great Migration in the 1930s, and people driving for Uber late at night as a second job. The Cantor is pleased to present these powerful and engaging documentaries by first- and second-year MFA students in Stanford’s Documentary Film and Video program.
