Twelve Wake Forest University students will present a screening of their original films at 7 p.m. April 26 in the Annenberg Forum in Carswell Hall, Room 111. The screening is free and open to the public.

The highlight of the event, which features seven films produced in conjunction with Wake Forest communication courses, will be two documentaries produced by senior communication majors.

In "Our Son" by Cagney Gentry, the audience will meet the family of a local Wilksboro man on Death Row. Katy Slavin's film, yet to be titled, focuses on the issue of piracy and the film industry.

Five other short narrative films, produced as part of an introductory communication course, will also be presented: "Fascade" by Justin St. Pierre and Drew Taylor; "I am NOS" by Yates Jarvis; "The Job" by Nathan Witmer; "Just a Minute" by Kate Bashore, Marta Cerceno de Pablo and Alli Soule; and "Keepsake" by Maria Ramos de Castro, Chris Sutton.

The event is sponsored by the Wake Forest Film Studies Program and the communication department.
