The documentary, â€śThe 3,100-mile Self-transcendence Raceâ€ť by doctoral students Corrina Laughlin and Kevin Gotkin, and a series of radio documentaries produced by Annenberg undergraduate students in Sandra Ristovskaâ€™s class â€śComm 320: Urban Ethnography: Documenting City Lifeâ€ť will be among the works exhibited at the 2014 Screening Scholarship Media Festival. Ristovska, and doctoral students Kate Zambon and Emily LaDue have been involved in the planning for this yearâ€™s festival.
Laughlin and Gotkinâ€™s documentary followed the runners who participated in a 3,100-mile marathon in Jamaica, Queens. The radio documentaries, each five minutes long, provide up close reviews of the Black Star Film Festival, the life-changing aspects of participation in West Philadelphia drill teams, and a powerful look at the so-called â€śSchool to Prison Pipelineâ€ť in Philadelphia.
