What makes Durham the “South’s Tastiest Town”?
The film – the final project of the 2013 School of Doc held in conjunction with Student U (studentudurham.org/) – was produced, directed, edited, and shot by Durham North Carolina High School Students.
The School of Doc—a free five-week summer filmmaking camp open to all Durham, North Carolina, high school students—is an extension of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Participants learn the art and craft of documentary filmmaking from instructors who make their living in the film industry and produce a documentary of their choosing. The finished films will be presented at the 2014 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival next April, and camp participants will be able to attend the festival free of charge.
The mission of Student U is to empower students in the Durham Public Schools to own their education by developing the academic skills and personal well-being necessary to succeed in college and beyond.
The Student U model is successful because it harnesses students’ power to change the world. The program inspires and empowers students of all ages by challenging them to use their passion to make a difference in their community. As a part of Student U, students and teachers of all ages develop a shared vision for a brighter future and gain the courage and skills necessary to make that vision a reality.
