Niam Peren, filmmaker, disciple of Dame Jane Campion, and MS SDM student collaborated closely during this challenging year with Mariana Amatullo to direct an interview series with leaders from Cumulus (all available to view on the CumulusConnects YouTube channel). Niam also produced a very poetic, 10-min film about the Cumulus Design association and its future (watch it here).  This was all accomplished despite the lack of opportunity to collect on-site footage due to COVID-19. This work premiered at Sapienza University and the Cumulus Design Culture(s) conference last week and will be promoted by Cumulus in the next few weeks.
