Young Women’s Mentoring Program visit The Department of Film & Media.
The program was hosted by Professor Tami Gold. Prof. Gold spoke to 50 young women about her work as an independent documentary filmmaker.
Karen Ranucci, from Democracy Now, will talk about journalism and how it is the duty of journalists to look deeper into news stories. She will talk about Democracy Now and why this kind of independent media is important. Karen will present a few video clips produced by women journalists/filmmakers — the story looks behind the arrest of “terrorists” in Newberg and Albany. http://www.democracynow.org/2010/10/6/entrapment_or_foiling_terror_fbis_reliance
