The documentary film, Life as a Collage, created by seven Sitar Arts Center students between the ages of 10-18, was named as an official selection at three major U.S. film festivals, the 55th San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF); the National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY) in Seattle, WA; and the West Chester International Short Film Festival in West Chester, PA.
The film is an end-of-life portrait of Tim Gabel, a long time collage and landscape painting teacher at Sitar Arts Center, who was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2010 and passed away prior to the films completion in 2011. Gabel had been teaching at the Center every Saturday for 10 years, never missing a day, until he became sick.
The Guild first reported on the film on our website on August 2011. To read more about Gabel, the seven student filmmakers, and Life as a Collage, read our August post.
