On June 5, teens involved with the Youth Media Program will host a screening of their work. The event will begin at 6 pm and will be held at CCTV’s new home at 438 Massachusetts Avenue. The event is free and open to the public.
At the June 5 screening, Toni Allien, Fard Berry, Chay Holmes, Remi Jones, Wilgens Metelus, Jose Negron, Ranea Riley Walker, Obeng Serebour, Tedy Woldemariam and Xavier Marquez will screen their work from the spring semester, which includes animations and a short documentary series, “Innovation in My Backyard.“ Produced through a collaboration with Novartis, “Innovation in My Backyard” explores careers in science and how drug discovery research at Novartis helps patients.
