This storytelling and filmmaking workshop is designed for student fellows whose parents are incarcerated.  It provides an opportunity for them to explore the impact of the experience on their lives, and to express themselves creatively to their parents, to each other, and to the community through short films.  They'll learn all aspects of the video diary from writing to videography, editing to music.  Each fellow will create her/his own video diary to be shown at a public screening and on the program website.  Fellows will have final say over which parts of their stories are shared.  Limited to 12 student fellows.
