Documentary Workshop Part I: The Art of Documentary Storytelling, by Sheila Curran Bernard

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sheila Curran Bernard is an Emmy and George Foster Peabody Award-winning writer, filmmaker, and educator with expertise in both drama and documentary, especially work that uses the tools of creative writing to enhance the rigor as well as the appeal of nonfiction media. She has played a leading role in creating and overseeing projects for national and international broadcast, theatrical release, and museum and classroom use—work that is often strategically leveraged to enhance impact through the development of components for education and outreach/public engagement.  She is the author of Documentary Storytelling, now in its third edition and widely translated; co-author with Kenn Rabin of Archival Storytelling; and a consultant and collaborator on documentary companion publications. Ms. Bernard has worked with major networks and production companies, among them Discovery, IMAX, Lifetime, Maysles Films, and PBS. Her works are a testament to diversity and social justice.

Ms. Bernard will present and discuss clips of her works to explain her approach to documentary, nonfiction storytelling in Slavery by Another Name (PBS, 2012); Bad Blood: A Cautionary Tale (theatrical release, 2010; PBS, 2011); and several signature collaborations with Henry Hampton’s Blackside Inc., including Eyes on the Prize II, This Far by Faith: African-American Spiritual Journeys, and I’ll Make Me a World: A Century of African-American Art, and her strategies for teaching documentary storytelling as a means of enhancing media literacy.

Moderators: Thomas Mascaro, Bowling Green State University; Evan Johnson, Normandale Community College

Sponsored in part by the School of Media and Communication of Bowling Green State University
