Here are three that premiere tonight — “Cosmic Debris” (10:00 PM - THU 4/19) from cinematographer and #VCmember @geneagaudet and director @patrick.d.waldrop depicts the friendship between animator Gabor Csupo and the legendary musician Frank Zappa. “Everything is Stories” edited by #VCmember @cohenben (7:15 PM - THU 4/19) tells the story of Peter Setfan the owner of a funeral parlor who, amid a damning controversy, faced the question of where to draw the line on who deserves a burial. “Crime Cutz” (7:15 PM - THU 4/19) blurs the line between documentary and music video. It profiles four New Yorkers set to the soundtrack of Holy Ghost!’s Crime Club EP, where each subject interprets a song in their own way.

Meet @mariamdwedar - she’s been a member of the VC since the get go. Currently she’s working on a few different shoots: the mental health of refugees trapped on the islands in Greece, the stories of the wives and children of former IS fighters in Iraq/Syria, a portrait of a psychiatrist (for victims of torture) and artist in Egypt, the lives and political views of youth in Iran, and a couple of personal projects in Cuba and Palestine. Here she is looking like a boss setting up her next shot 💪🎥 #VCmember #VCspotlight
