Visual History & Filmmaking - Student Documentaries
Professor Justin Wolfe's "Visual History & Filmmaking" course takes an innovative approach to teaching historical analysis. The class challenges students to do historical research in archives and through interviews, and present it in the form of a documentary film.
The films were screened on campus at the end of the semester. The student producers submitted "Camp of the Innocents" to the New Orleans Film Festival, which selected it for this year's lineup. “Camp of the Innocents” will be shown as part of the “Louisiana Shorts” selections at the Prytania Theatre on Saturday, October 14 from 5:00-6:45pm.
"Visual History & Filmmaking" is being offered this Spring. No technical experience required!
