WITS Student Video Finalist in WritersCorps Competition

Posted May 27, 2013 & filed under Notebook.

hpWritersCorps, an organization that teaches creative writing to underserved youth, held the third annual Poetry Projection Project, a festival of short films inspired by youth poems, at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

Special guest juror H.P. Mendoza, an award-winning San Francisco-based filmmaker (”Colma: The Musical,” and “I Am a Ghost”), announced the winners of the festival.

One of the finalists shown at the festival was created by students from WITS Houston in a collaborative project with Aurora Picture Show. Middle school immigrant students at Kaleidoscope Middle School wrote and filmed a video that explores the places they left behind, the places they now call home, and the places they imagine.
