I was on the road yesterday, visiting a classroom of film students at American University. Half of the class will be working with us at the F.E.A.S.T. symposium: filming the events and family stories and generally documenting the event. The professor, Sarah Meinke-Fish, asked the students their ideas on how to approach the project and I got a little verklempt: their creativity and engagement - they asked excellent questions and were quick to see the issues from many angles. That, my friends, is what is needed.
Having these marvelous young people there will "reframe" the experience for us in November and into the future. It is quite an honor to have the help, the eyes, and the ear of this group!
