From the Out Here is an experimental documentary film created by the Buffalo Youth Media Institute. Utilizing free and open-source applications, Kyle Everette, Patricia O’Sullivan, Timiyah Curry, Tyler Everette, and Zahara Morrell weave together five meditations on topics such as mental health, federal discretionary spending, ignorance, and healthcare. The film was developed during a four-week virtual intensive, making it both a reflection on and a product of our current world. Pointing to an uncertain future, the filmmakers ask themselves, “are we the answer?”
