On the latest episode of The Liberal Arts Endeavor, a podcast by Michigan State University’s College of Arts & Letters, host Dean Christopher P. Long discusses the art of storytelling through filmmaking with Alexandra Hidalgo, Assistant Professor of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures and award-winning filmmaker. Hidalgo describes the filmmaking process from beginning to end with a focus on her most recent film project, a feature documentary titled The Weeping Season, which recently was awarded a $6,000 Humanities and Arts Research Program (HARP) grant.
Hidalgo is the founder and editor-in-chief of agnès films, a digital publication that supports the work of women and feminist filmmakers.
