Miami to screen award-winning documentary Oct. 19


Miami University will screen “Storm Lake,” an award-winning documentary about journalism, democracy, immigration and citizenship at 6:30 p.m., Oct. 19, in the Harry T. Wilks Theatre in Armstrong Student Center. 

The documentary, set to debut publicly next month, tells the story of a biweekly, family-run newspaper called Storm Lake Times and the changing Iowa town it calls home. 

The event will include a virtual Q&A with Co-Director Beth Levison and Art Cullen. Cullen is the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing. Attendees will learn about the Miami history course devoted to studying the community of Storm Lake, Iowa. 

This event will be hosted by Miami’s Department of Media, Journalism & Film and the Department of History. More information can be found here.
