Digital journalism students to premiere documentary on poverty

Second-year students in the digital journalism program will premiere their film, How Bad is Bad, a documentary exploring issues of poverty in Windsor, on Sunday.

Students in the course “Collaborative Studio II” have been conducting interviews since January, says spokesperson Aria Carter: “from city officials to soup kitchens and food banks to the people living on the streets.”

She says the city’s poverty is hidden, making it worse than most people think.

“We hope that this documentary can start a conversation about this issue and hopefully find a way to help these people who are living in poverty,” Carter says.

The screening is open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. April 3 in New Song Church, 999 Drouillard Road.
