Kartemquin in the classroom

Kartemquin's Executive Director Justine Nagan recently visited two high school AVID classes while in Minnesota as a part of KTQ's 45th anniversary. She spoke to freshmen and juniors at Robbinsdale Armstrong High School about social issue documentary, careers in media and the future of film, showing clips from several KTQ works.

Additionally, she recently visited Ruth Leitman's class on the history of Kartemquin at Columbia College Chicago. Other KTQ veterans were previous guest speakers and Justine enjoyed the chance to talk with several emerging media makers about her role at Kartemquin and the industry in general.

We are also currently hosting Ahmed Hamed, a visiting filmmaker from Egypt who is making a film on his experiences in the recent revolution and of his trip to Chicago.
