CAMS Professor Cecilia Cornejo awarded MSAB Artist Initiative grant

15 January 2018

Cecilia Cornejo, Instructor in Cinema and Media Studies, has been awarded a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant to complete Ways of Being Home, the second in a trilogy of films that traces the experience of marginalized communities in Northfield.  In collaboration with members of the Mexican community of Northfield, Cornejo will complete a poetic documentary that examines issues of displacement, belonging, and resilience from their perspective.  Community members will contribute to the making of the film by sharing their personal experiences, performing technical roles during the shooting process, creating the film’s soundtrack, and offering their feedback at three screenings of the work in progress, actively shaping the final film.
