Documenting Latinx Lives

"Documenting Latinx Lives" is a Latino and Caribbean Studies video production seminar taught by Prof. Ulla D. Berg at Rutgers University, using the medium of video to explore contemporary issues that affect the lives of Latinx communities in the United States. During one semester students are trained in advanced production techniques and they learn to employ narrative structures and storytelling strategies in ethnographic and documentary films and consider the distinct representational techniques, dilemmas and possibilities these hold for representing Latinx social experience. Each student produce their own 10-minute documentary films.
