Storytelling for Justice: Documentary, Semi-Documentary, and Fictional Media

We explore the creation of accurate representations of social issues in factual and fictional media; and the relative effectiveness of different media representation modes and types, to support and improve Partner Eagle Vision’s effectiveness as a media producer. Our objective in collaborating is to link the researcher and intern’s expertise in qualitative research with Eagle Vision’s media production knowledge and experience to inform our shared concerns for different forms of narratives in culture and their relation to the justice. This research contributes to Eagle Vision’s production’s value through association with academic experts, and contributes to their mandate to “create content that creates change” (Eagle Vision n.d.).
