MOVIES: CU professor to have film screened in Hollywood
The film is viewable online at Girl(s), however it does contain sensitive subject matter and may not be suitable for all viewers.
By Ellen Hittson
CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Dr. Jason Garrett, associate professor of communication at Campbellsville University, has been selected to present his film "Girl(s)" at the Black Hollywood Education Resource Center in Hollywood, Calif., Saturday, March 31, 2012.
Garrett produced, directed and edited the film during the fall 2011 semester with the students in his narrative video production class as his crew.
He will be attending the festival on Saturday and discussing the film with the audience immediately following the screening.
Garrett said that Girl(s)' is about a 14-year old pregnant African-American girl and the Caucasian women she encounters along the way.
"For me 'Girl(s)' is a study of subtle racism," Garrett said.
Garrett has taught at CU since 2003. He received his master's degree in communication from Regent University in 2001 and his bachelor of arts in theater arts from Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, N.C. in 1998.
He received his Ph.D. in communications from Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va. in May 2008.
He is married to Starr Garrett, director of the theater at CU and assistant professor of theater.
They have two children: August and Everest.
