Hope in the Dark Screening

News Story

You’re invited to the 2018 PaceDocs world premiere of Hope in the Dark. Students traveled to Puerto Rico last semester to document the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Maria, and to interview the people affected by the storm.

Puerto Rico: Hope in the Dark is the story of the people of Puerto Rico and the faith, strength, and hope that has sustained them in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria. It is the most recent production of students in the Media, Communications, and Visual Arts travel documentary course led by Maria Luskay, EdD.

The team has said they are “grateful and honored to have the opportunity to be a part of this production and to have the chance to share this extremely important and impactful story. We are excited to share the beauty of Puerto Rico, its people, their sense of community, and their hope throughout this darkness.” Join them for a free screening and reception:
