“Both Sides of the Camera”
Rosalind Pichardo and Tony Heriza
Time: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Location: Zoom (https://psu.zoom.us/j/97819425179)
Community activist and educator Rosalind Pichardo and documentary filmmaker Tony Heriza will talk about the relationship of journalists and documentarians to their subjects when telling the stories of marginalized communities. What is the role of the journalist? What is their responsibility? How does it feel to have your life reported, photographed and documented? Reporters need to consider their purpose when choosing to tell these stories and how should the consent of a subject be addressed? What is the intersection of truth and fairness and responsibility?
The session is part of the ongoing Journalism Speakers Forium. https://www.bellisario.psu.edu/journalism-speakers-forum
