Brooks Institute Documentary Premiere: FROM WITHIN
Well, this evening was quite an unexpected treat for MDF and one that made us believers of the student film genre. We missed the first showing last Saturday, but had the opportunity to see the annual Brooks Institute student documentary tonight which premiered in Ventura, California. From Within portrays a Vietnam from a modern day (excuse our namesake's pun!) perspective while preserving the past from a culture still rising from the trenches. With captivating vignettes within the film ranging from seducing landscapes, heart-wrenching personal stories to the B-Boy's breakdancing battles. This doc promises to leave you with that someone's-doing-some-right-in-the-world feeling. So, hats off to the 10 Visual Journalism students and Professor Myers!
