Emphasizing not only the story, but the storytelling, the program’s goal is for students to be skilled in both form and content, able tell a story by effectively using all aspects of the medium. The program culminates with each student producing, shooting and editing a 30-minute documentary. DOC NYC U is co-presented by Kanopy
