March 5, 2015 at 12:30: Guest Speaker -Imam Childs


On Thursday March 5th from 12:30 to 1:30 in Room B106, AUR’s Film & Digital Media Program is having its second Lunch and Learn Workshop of the semester, taught by Iman Childs.

Iman Childs is from New York City and recently graduated from Northwestern University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Film. During her time at Northwestern, she served as the founder and co-president of the Multicultural Filmmakers Collective and worked as an Ambassadors Coordinator in the Office of Undergraduate Admission. Her senior thesis film, In Plain Sight, was screened at three film festivals in New York City this past fall.

A recipient of a Fulbright research grant, Iman will be spending the 2014-2015 academic year in Rome. Immigration to Italy is at the forefront in Italian government, news, and film thanks to the country’s rapidly-growing foreign-born population and the debate over citizenship. Through the medium of documentary film, Iman is researching the experience and integration of first and second generation African immigrants into Italian society. The documentary will compare the lives of African immigrants to their depiction in Italian news and film.

 This lecture is part of the COM408 Media, Art, and Social Activism course’s guest speaker series.

Open to the AUR Community. Feel free to bring your lunch.
**Please note, only 10-15 seats are available so please be on time to grab a spot! **
