In the spirit of the RIDE (Risk/Dare/Experiment) series, Sachs and a small group of Pratt students will present Extra Long Twin, their original 15-minute live film-performance as a finale to the program.

In 2001, I photographed her at six years old, spinning like a top around me. Even then, I realized that her childhood was not something I could grasp but rather – like the wind – something I could feel tenderly brushing across my cheek.
In Your Day is My Night, my collective of Chinese living in New York City explores the history and meaning of “shiftbeds” through verité conversations, character-driven fictions and integrated movement pieces.
