Video: Rosa

Rosa from Documenting Justice on Vimeo.

Rosa is a short documentary I produced with Hillary Moore for a course at the University of Alabama called Documenting Justice. For the first semester of the yearlong course, we learned the basics of documentary production. In the second semester, we produced a documentary. This film tells the story of a small Alabama town’s fight to stop a new coal company from mining in an area that had a bad history with mining.
