The production team for the¬†Living Gal√°pagos¬†project will host an advance screening of the short documentaries for the project at 6:15 p.m. tonight in the¬†Nelson Mandela Auditorium
A collection of student-produced multimedia stories about the people of the island of San¬†Crist√≥bal
, the project was¬†completed by a team of students and faculty from the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication
¬†who spent spring break on San Crist√≥bal collecting videos, photos and data about the people.
There will be free refreshments served at 6:15 p.m., and the screening will begin at 7 p.m.
The project is based off the award-winning 2009 project of the same name. It is a student-authored website that uses multimedia storytelling to explore the impact of mankind on the¬†Gal√°pagos Islands.
"Our project provides students with a unique opportunity to tell stories that can have a real impact on viewers' understanding of the islands," said Pat Davison
, photojournalism professor and executive producer of the project.
The 2012 edition of the website will launch in early May.
