Kartemquin filmmakers featured at area career days

On Friday, Editorial Director Leslie Simmer spoke at Friedrich Jahn World Language School's career day. Jahn is a magnet school for grades K-8. Leslie had a great time engaging with 2nd-7th graders and telling them about what it's like to make documentaries about regular people. Although some of the students were disappointed that we don't work with Johnny Depp, they asked great questions and some of them already knew what a boom mic was. Impressive!

Then on Saturday, Executive Director Justine Nagan was featured panelist at University of Chicago’s Arts&Culture Day. She spoke to students about pursuing careers in Arts Administration, Education & Production.
