The College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media along with the School of Communication would like to invite you to a screening of "Don't Forget Me" a documentary following Jackie Spinner, associate professor at Columbia College in Chicago. The screening will take place Thursday, Oct. 10 at 7 P.M. in the Community Engagement Center, rooms 230-231 and is free and open to the public.
After adopting two boys from Morocco, both on the autism scale, Spinner shares her experiences about the difficulty of getting assistance for children in Morocco. Her film documents that however hard it may be in the U.S., getting help for autistic children, or children of any disability, is much harder in other countries. Spinner is a former Washington Post business reporter and was the Post's Baghdad bureau chief in 2006 during the Iraq war.
Spinner will also participate in a film making workshop, Friday, Oct. 11 at 10 A.M. in the CPACS Commons for anyone interested in the art of documentary film making.
