Ryan Gangemi (MFA 2008)
Since leaving St. Rose, Ryan Gangemi has become an English Professor in his own right, working at Adirondack Community College, where he teaches courses in creative writing, and at Schenectady County Community College. Even more exciting, he’s recently become a filmmaker, directing his first film, which he also wrote, one year ago. “The Second Loss” tells the story of a married couple struggling to understand the new parameters of their relationship when their young daughter is left comatose in a household accident. The film has been accepted into The Long Island International Film Expo, The Niagara Falls International Film Festival, Albany’s New York State International Film Festival, and won “Best in Fest” at Glens Falls’ first ever GEM Film Festival. Gangemi has just begun work on his fourth film, “Imperfect Goddesses”, which he hopes will be making the Festival Circuit early next year.
