Second class film announced for Nov/Dec 2007 6-week class!

The Edit Center is excited to announce the addition of a second class project to the November/December 2007 6-week class. Reporter: On the Ground with Nicholas Kristof is a documentary set in central Africa which chronicles, in verité fashion, the haunting, physically grueling and, at moments, shocking voyage of Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist, Nick Kristof. He is joined by two young companions—Will Okun, a 33-year old high school teacher and photographer from Chicago, and Leana Wen, a 24-year old medical student from St Louis. The reason for their trip is simple: travel to ignored conflict regions (this time Rwanda, Congo and Burundi) and report back to other Americans, via daily blogs on the New York Times website. The film will bring individual stories into rich, colorful, audible existence, thereby extending their reach and the critical issues they embody. Reporter is directed by 2007 Independent Spirit Awards Nominee, Eric Daniel Metzger, and brought to us by Stick Figure Productions who have produced numerous award-winning documentary films including, Devil’s Playground, Willie Nelson: Still Moving, and loudQUIETloud: a film about the Pixies.
