Documentary

Communicating truth

A collaborative, hands-on filmmaking program wherein the process of making the movie itself is transformative. It's not just about the final piece, but also  about outreach and becoming aware of a community.

We worked with the Journalism class at Los Angeles High School and taught them the fundamentals of documentary film and the many possible routes that doc filmmaking can take. Various paths to truth (or subjective truth). Their result was a 19-minute documentary film comprised of student and teacher interviews interwoven with scenes of life from around campus.
