The project creates an opportunity for APA youth to learn about the art of film making and the history of their relatives.  Students will be mentored by Jim Helmer and advanced video students at Santa Rosa High School's ArtQuest. Additional skills garnered are interview techniques and how to edit their documentary film into a 3-5 minute vignette (to possibly air on the Smithsonian Affiliate website).
