Documentary in film making: Stephen Sowers guest lecture


Michi Suazo, Features Editor

Many of today’s college students do not know that during the Vietnam War members of the Ohio National Guard opened fire on unarmed students at Kent State University during a mass protest in 1970. This is just one fact documentary filmmaker Stephen Sowers has shown in a 10-part documentary series called The Vietnam War. It is a series directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.

Majored in communication with a film studies concentration and minored in history at the University of Massachusetts, Stephen Sowers held a guest lecture in Professor Bob Foster’s Media in American Society class last month.
