Independent filmmakers will share their work and advice

More on my theme of don't GET a job -- MAKE a job-- and make an IMPACT: Two distinguished role models will be here on campus soon and I really encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.

Films like Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Bowling for Columbine" have been among the most influential and provocative media pieces of recent years. Filmmakers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal who were producers on these films will be on campus to screen their Oscar-nominated documentary "Trouble the Water" about Hurricane Katrina.

Sponsored by the Park Center for Independent Media, "Trouble the Water" will be screened on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in Emerson Suites, Phillips Hall. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Lessin and Deal. On Wednesday, Sept. 16, they will show excerpts from their works and discuss the “Agonies/Ecstasies of Independent Filmmaking” at 7 p.m. in Park Auditorium.
