program for moral courage in film


Representative Student Films

Students have traveled nationally and internationally to film documentaries about moral courage, social justice, and human rights. Their works have been exhibited in theaters, festivals, conferences and on local cable television at Boston College. The students have shown some of their photographic work in exhibitions, e.g. on Rwanda, and screened their films with a presentation at the Boston College Arts Festival annually. Each student has had and opportunity to be exposed to a situation where he or she can learn about an issue of serious importance in our society today.
