January's Friday Five
In an effort to keep everyone up-to-date on what our university experts are saying and doing, we’ll be send out the “The Friday Five,” an email complete with five items (and maybe a couple lagniappe) meant to keep you informed of the stories we’ve placed or written, the videos we’ve produced, and the projects we’ve had a hand in creating.
Here's a roundup of all the exciting things that happened in January!
Please feel free to share these news items to keep the good news of Loyola going!
- Loyola film instructor and winner of the 2017 Sundance Garrett Bradley premieres “America” on tomorrow, January 26, at the Sundance Film Festival. Her motion picture, a compilation of 12 silent films depicting everyday black life in the early 20th century, sheds light on a lost era in film and explores issues of race, history, justice, and media. The film will be the subject of a sculptural installation that kicks off this summer at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
