Come hear about student forum ENG420: DIGITAL JOURNALISM, a semester-long course where we will focus on producing online content and developing our portfolio. This writing-intensive seminar will introduce students to a variety of forms, from the interview, to the profile, to data-based storytelling. We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.

Sophia Jennings ’16 and Ben Romero ’16 will be leading the student forum.

2014. Spain/Cuba. Dir: Irene Gutiérrez Torres, Javier Labrador. Doc. 71 min.


This contemplative, slice-of-life documentary follows an elderly Havana man who spends his days tending to the dilapidated titular establishment and bonding with his fellow inhabitants. The filmmakers suggest a bittersweet unity among their protagonist, his dwelling, and the country itself – all may have seen better days yet remain relentlessly vital.
