Housatonic Valley Regional High School students show documentaries they created as part of a program with Global Village Media in a joint project with the The Connecticut Project for the Constitution, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of public dialogue on issues of constitutional importance. The films – aimed at demonstrating how the Constitution intersects with the students’ own local communities – will be used as a catalyst for discussion between the audience and student film makers about the role and responsibility of public discourse in a Democracy.

Through their film production company, Global Village Media, Catherine Tatge and Dominique Lasseur are partnering with high schools and colleges to educate students in the democratic process and to increase citizen engagement through the use of documentary film production. The student films presented at this Salisbury Forum are the result of that collaboration.
