How can youth-produced archival documentaries serve as a tool to critically examine social issues from a historical perspective? During this session, participants will engage in an activity taken from a youth program where participants remix a documentary about a social issue and embed it in a website aimed at social action. The hands-on activity will be followed by a reflective discussion about how to support a media learning project grounded in a critical historical understanding.
