Boston University's Film and Television Department’s Cinemathèque is a series of meetings and conversations with filmmakers/televison-makers and free screenings of important, innovative films and television programs. Cinematheque is the department’s premiere screening series.
This week's subject is Dia Sokol-Savage. Smith grad Sokol-Savage has gone from being producer for Andrew Bujalski’s indie features to a career as an MTV producer. At BU, she will show episodes from her two long-running, celebrated MTV series, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 2. These much-watched shows are credited with actually lowering the rates of teen pregnancies in some American states, more effectively than faith-based religious teachings.
