Lights. Camera. Cornell!

Do you love movies? Do you like documentaries? Are you curious about what it takes to create an independent film? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," please join us!


You're invited to a panel conversation with Robert H. Lieberman '62, film director, and Deborah C. Hoard, MPS '78, president of PhotoSynthesis Productions, to discuss their experience in the independent film industry and their latest collaboration: “Echoes of the Empire: Beyond Genghis Khan”, a visually stunning film about ancient and modern Mongolia, sponsored by Cornell’s Podell Endowment for Research and Scholarship.

We invite alumni to watch the film at their own time before the event and come hear from the filmmakers about this amazing experience. You can rent the movie here. We look forward to seeing you there!
