The pandemic has undoubtedly created a sense of isolation for many, and it has become increasingly important for us to reexamine the concept of human connection in the 21st century and pay attention to mental health. We invite you to join us at our upcoming screening of Invited In, a short film about a teenager struggling with loneliness during the pandemic and the damaging effects of social media. Ms. Yuyu Kitamura, the film’s writer, director, and leading actress, will also be there to share about her journey of making this movie and the message she hopes to deliver.

Meet our Speaker:

Yuyu Kitamura is a Japanese actress, poet and film maker who graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Raised in the international city of Hong Kong, she values the individuality and commonalities we all share as we look to explore human connection. Her experiences as an actress, working on production sets behind the camera, and in the office with development, Yuyu surrounds herself in creative environments that fuel her passion and creativity in the arts. When she is not acting or writing, you can find her cooking for people and begging them to eat it, sweating at a work out class (who doesn’t love endorphins) or hopping around the city with her film camera.
