Newhouse Professor and Students Help High Schoolers Produce Documentary
Five Fowler High School students have produced a documentary working with Newhouse Professor Richard Breyer and his University students. The students’ film will debut at 6 p.m. Monday, June 9, in the Fowler High School Auditorium, 227 Magnolia St.
This is the second year the Newhouse School and Fowler have partnered on a film project.
The evening will also include food from the students’ home countries and a Q&A.
Fowler’s student body speaks more than 25 languages, many are refugees. The five participants reflect this diversity. Thing Sai and Jacob Ngawi are from Burma; Husam Jameel grew up in Baghdad; Mupenzi Kabera hails from the Republic of the Congo; and Priscilla Thunderberk is a native Syracusan.
Fowler advisor Susan Centore says, “the true story of Fowler lies in the students. What makes the school so special is not the building, but the students inside it.”
One of the films from last year’s project, “A Player for Life,” can be viewed at http://vimeo.com/65347634.
