Video Institute Premiere

“Jesuits in Latin America: Argentina”

The Canisius College Video Institute premieres a new documentary on Wednesday, March 21 at 7 p.m. in the Science Hall Commons. The event is free and open to the public with refreshments to follow.

“Jesuits in Latin America: Argentina” is a student-created film that follows the Jesuit missions in Argentina. The student filmmakers visited several estancias to learn about the evolving view of the Jesuit mission since Pope Francis became the leader of the Catholic Church.

“Jesuits in Latin America: Argentina” was produced by Nicholas Foraker ’18 and Justin Fague ’19. The two students traveled for two weeks to Cordoba, Igazu Falls, Buenos Aires and Paraguay to shoot footage for the documentary.

The Canisius College Video Institute provides students with opportunities to put their classroom lessons to work on projects that enrich their learning and benefit the greater community. Students produce social documentaries and service-oriented videos – all connected by the theme of social justice – to promote discourse on ethical, social and cultural issues relevant to the world today.
