Filmmaker Nancy Savoca aims to be as authentic as possible. Her films are brilliant, intimate portraits that explore the weight of social institutions and social injustice placed upon the shoulders of her characters. Her lead characters, typically women, must balance their needs with those of others in order to find their true voice. This U-M student-curated exhibit is the result of a semester-long course devoted to her films and career.

Savoca contributed her papers — spanning her career as a director, producer, and screenwriter — to the Screens Arts Mavericks & Makers collection at the U-M Library. Her archive represents nearly three decades of indie filmmaking, and includes notes, notebooks, photos, and script drafts.
