AU students plan short film about Georgetown bias crimes
Students at the November 2 anti-hate crime vigil
Three American University students are producing a short video about the several bias–related incidents that took place on Georgetown’s campus this semester. Though they are producing the film for a class, their main intention is to post it on the website run by “Not in Our Town,” a group that responds to hate crimes across the country.
Ashley Dejean said that she, Marley Cook, and Jasmine Rao spent three days at Georgetown filming the scene of the crimes and interviews with several students and faculty who were involved with the response to the incidents, including Carter Lavin (SFS ’10), Ellen Greer (COL ’11), Adam Talbot (COL ’12), and LGBTQ Center Director Sivagami Subbaraman. The film will run between three and five minutes.
