20 YEARS OF JULIE MALLOZZI PRODUCTIONS August 2016
We are so excited to celebrate 20 years of Julie Mallozzi Productions and reflect on what we’ve learned from all of this documentary filmmaking and community storytelling. Check out our new website and weekly Throwback Thursday tweets on videos we have made over the years.
Through this work I have been privileged to talk in depth with people in schools, factories, hospitals, prisons, housing projects, legislatures, courts, and arts organizations about their work to improve systems. As the world becomes ever more interconnected, our company’s storytelling has begun to cross platforms into websites, social media, and physical spaces. The new transmedia section of our website reflects this evolving orientation.
We just completed a successful crowdfunding campaign for our documentary The Circle: Stories of Murder and Justice. We now have a 90-minute rough cut about Janet Connors’ reconciliation with her son’s murderers and their groundbreaking restorative justice work in Boston. Our story has broadened to include other trauma survivors, criminal justice leaders, and Native American peacemakers who team up with with Janet to divert at-risk youth from violence – turning pain and anger into positive community change.
This month we are finishing several videos for Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. The first features fellows sharing how their Radcliffe year gave them time and space to finish big projects, brought them into inspiring dialogue with other disciplines, and pushed their intellectual boundaries. • We have also produced two educational training pieces: on 21st Century Skills at Revere High School and on Extended Learning Opportunities at Highlander Charter School. Viewable in modules, the videos contain handy graphical tips for teachers and administrators to incorporate student-centered approaches.
