University Forum: The Filmmaker’s Voice in Changing Media Landscape
Join us for an engaging conversation with award-winning filmmakers and professors in the Social Documentation MFA program Jacqueline Olive and Jennifer Maytorena Taylor, whose most recent feature documentaries are Always in Season and For the Love of Rutland.
Award-winning filmmakers Jacqueline Olive and Jennifer Maytorena Taylor make documentary feature films and shorts about a range of contemporary social issues, often through the points of view of people in communities that have often been overlooked or misrepresented, but whose lives, stories, and struggles are vital to more deeply and accurately understanding the world.
This conversation will focus on the documentary filmmaking process in today’s shifting media landscape, strategies for working with nuance and in deep relationship with the people and communities featured in their films, and ways in which they bring their practice and values to the classroom and UCSC community.
