“It’s filmmaker Sue Ding’s love letter to Claudia-philes.”

We’re thrilled to share the news that today CMS alum Sue Ding, S.M. ’17, has released her documentary short “The Claudia Kishi Club” on Netflix. From the New York Times/Associated Press:

It’s filmmaker Sue Ding’s love letter to Claudia-philes.

“I want the vibe of the film to be you’re at a ‘Baby-Sitters Club’ sleepover with your closest friends and you’re reminiscing,” Ding said.

In the short documentary, a handful of Asian American writers and illustrators effuse about how influential the character was for that time.

“For some, their parents were actively not supportive of them pursuing more artistic career choices,” Ding said. “Even for those whose families were supportive, they didn’t necessarily see people like themselves working in media as directors or painters.”
