 Documentaries help shed light on significant topics, and challenge their audiences to act on relevant issues of the day.  The objectives of this course are to introduce students to the art of documentary filmmaking, and to explore the ways in which documentary filmmaking can serve as a catalyst for articulating social justice issues that prompt audiences to take action.  Working in small, collaborative teams, students will learn to write and produce short documentary videos on social justice issues that are specifically related to the Georgia Tech Community, the City of Atlanta, and/or the State of Georgia.  The course will conclude with screenings of student work that will be open to members of the public, partner organizations, and subjects of films.
