¡Viva Mexico!: Reframing Mexico - Journalism Students Capture Day By Day Stories

Youth Radio: "Journalism students who walked into Professor Pat Davison's multimedia and digital storytelling class at the University of North Carolina School of Journalism in January, were faced with a huge challenge. International reporting has long been a staple of their program, and this year, the students were teaming up with students at Tecnólogico de Monterrey in Mexico City to create documentaries about life in Mexico.

The class's final project, "Reframing Mexico," ended up being recently re-published in the Washington Post. It is a series of short documentaries that zero in on a character--each one highlights an issue that the group wanted to tackle.

... "All you hear from Mexico are negative headlines and the drug war, but there's a lot more to it than that. This was a good broad umbrella. The goal was to paint a picture of Mexico City that goes beyond headlines," said Davison."
