Conversations From the Open Road is an ethnographic media road trip for Vermont high school and college students. 6 VT high school students, 1-2 college students, a videographer and the director (9-10 of us) drive in 2 cars to a community in our country struggling with an environmental, economic, cultural, racial, or political justice 'issue'. They listen to and learn from the people on the front lines and collaboratively gather audio, video and still footage. Participants will learn a ton and also enjoy the spontaneity of what this kind of adventure inevitably entails.

Ultimately, each student creates a documentary short about some inspiring thread of people, place and struggle/act of resilience.This collection of shorts is shown at different film festivals around Vermont. (2017 collections were just shown at the Green Mountain Film Festival).
