The three-semester News and Documentary Graduate Program at NYU Journalism prepares students to be independent in the field and to shoot and edit a documentary on their own. We are a blend of rigorous journalism and film aesthetic. These three documentaries represent the variety of topics, approaches, and styles we encourage. The stories were shot during the worst of Covid. Despite restrictions, the students prevailed.

Eagles Rest in Liangshan | Director: Bohao Liu
