Three great, short films
Three Loyola communication students are finalists in a national film competition. The Stories from the Line competition challenged students to tell stories about folks struggling to rise and remain above the poverty line in America. The maker of the winning short film will receive a $10,000 scholarship. Below are links to Jeff Chow, Katherine Cruz, and Owen Connor’s stories, which very much represent Loyola’s social justice mission. All of this work came out of a documentary course taught by instructor John Goheen. Each piece runs under 5 minutes in length.
