A  new short video produced by undergraduates in the Fall 2013 Video for Social Change course taught at the Center for Documentary Studies is a vivid portrayal of the devastating effects of laws, policies, and practices that push youth out of school and into the juvenile and criminal systems. An event on January 23 will feature a screening of North Carolina’s School-to-Prison Pipeline at Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy  followed by a panel discussion with community leaders and advocates.  The documentary was produced in association with the new organization Youth Justice North Carolina (YJNC). The Video for Social Change course is taught by CDS artist-in-residence and award-winning documentary producer Bruce Orenstein.
