Students delve into family histories

At Back Lane Studios, we’re always grateful to teacher Sean McClare and Bishop Marrocco/Thomas Merton High School for the opportunity to work with a Grade 12 class. This fall, the students produced videos about grandparents, parents and friends, as part of our SilverShorts Doc Project, our program for seniors.

What did the students like most about the project?  Here are a few comments:

  • “Learning about my grandmother and her struggles.”
  • “I enjoyed having the opportunity to learn more about my family’s backstory.”
  • “Learning about everyone’s family story.”
  • “Seeking to tell someone’s story and seeing how happy it made them to tell.”
