Join Scribe Video Center and ICA in recognizing the cinematic accomplishments of the 2020 Documentary History Project for Youth, an annual digital media production workshop for local middle and high school students.

For this iteration of the program the filmmakers examined leadership, documenting the different ways it appears in our homes, schools, churches, and other sites within the community. Each film reflects the calls for progress and action we are witnessing today in response to pressing societal issues.

The screening will be livestreamed from 6-7PM, followed by a conversation with the filmmakers from 7-8PM.
