FILM 3106 - Media Production for Social and Environmental Justice

5 credit hours
This course explores the intersection between film and media practices and movements for social and environmental justice. Through a documentary/non-fiction framework, we will explore a wide range of practices-from agit-prop to observational, autobiographical to collective-whose structural, thematic, narrative and aesthetic strategies have come to both define and expand the boundaries of media for social and environmental justice. As a “critical practice” course, students will create their own non-fiction media works, in addition to reading, writing and screening assignments. Over the course of the term, you will gain familiarity with multiple non-fiction media forms, and an understanding of the role of media in social and environmental justice movements. Through the completion of creative assignments, you will also develop a working knowledge of some foundational techniques in the production of media for social and environmental justice.
