Illinois Public Media worked with students in the College of Media, specifically students in MACS 496: Advanced Media Practicum, to create short opinionated documentary films about C-U. Three films were produced:
Independent Cinema in Champaign
Produced by Glenda Villalon, Eder Rebollar, and Wally West
The Altgeld Ringers
Produced by Elijah Kent, John Greska, and Jeremy Chen
Racism is Everywhere Out Here
Produced by Carson Wang and Nick Arroyo
You can see each of the documentaries here. They are worth a watch.
