Documentary Film and the City

Purcell Carson

Back to "Fall 2018" courses

This documentary film workshop explores non-fiction film through the lens of Trenton’s Latinx population, particularly Central American immigrants. Through films, readings, guest lectures, and hands-on filmmaking, students will study the history and strategies of migrant populations, the culture of remittance between the global north and south, and immigration policy. Students collaborate with each other and community partners to research, pitch, produce and edit short films. We end with two public screenings of student films.
