SCAD Grad Film Night: Shining a Light on "Yo, Yoyo"

Calling all SCAD film enthusiasts! We're thrilled to announce a special screening event in collaboration with a talented SCAD filmmakers, actors and artists alike.

Yoyo, a non-speaking crabber living in seclusion by the river, finds an unexpected con-nection when he attends a public class designed to foster trust amongst individ-uals with mental disabilities. Through the "Trust Fall" exercise, he meets Aliana and an undeniable bond forms. As they immerse in shared moments by the marsh and on a boat amidst the glowing sunset, their trust deepens into love.

However, reality strikes as we discover that Yoyo's romantic escapade with Aliana is only a daydream. They have just been grouped together in the class, yet to start their exercise. As the sun sets, Yoyo, alone on his boat, falls backwards into the river, surrendering himself

to the embrace of his dreams.

This heartwarming story, directed by Wen and produced by Simone, both Chinese nationals, explores themes of friendship, resilience, and the power of human connection.
