"TITLE VII"

My students and I have just watched "Title VII," Nicole Franklin's feature film about job discrimination. I don't want to give any spoilers, but I can say that every type of discrimination is there, all in a day at the office. I can't recommend the film enough; it was riveting! (P.S. It was also great to read my name on the credits as a consultant.)

The viewing was followed by a Q & A session which gave us the privilege of discussing the film with its creator. I really enjoyed it because I find it particularly rewarding to hear about how artists conceive of and produce their craft. For my students, the film illustrated a number of ideas that we have been discussing since January.

Great to see you again, Nicole! I wish you much success with "Title VII" and any other film that you may be working on.
