18 Mar Here’s Who We’re Honoring for Women’s History Month
THE NEXT GENERATION IS NOW:
EVC ALUM SPOTLIGHT
We at EVC are proud to celebrate our graduates from the past three decades whose documentaries have challenged us to think critically about pressing social issues in our lives. And we’re proud that they’ve gone on to make a difference in the world in countless ways — through the films they create, the communities they serve, and the students they teach.
In the spirit of Women’s History Month, we honor EVC graduate Christine L. Mendoza, a feminist, media activist, and inspiring role model and educator who has taught documentary workshops for youth in Northern Ireland, South Africa, and for many years here at EVC. When she was an EVC student back in 2001, she taught video for justice-involved youth in partnership with CASES while producing Tough on Crime, Tough on Our Kind, an award-winning documentary on juvenile justice that premiered at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival.
Now as Education Coordinator at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Christine teaches film to elementary school students, continuing to give back, and inspire the next generation of young filmmakers to tell their stories. We’re sure you will be inspired by her story.
In honor of Christine and Women History’s Month, we are offering 15% off selected films that discuss issues related to women from our DVD collection.
