A student team from the Robertson School's broadcast journalism capstone "MASC 461 - The Documentary" class has been invited to screen their mini-documentary "Stuck in Stone" at the 2019 Poe Film Festival at VCU’s Institute for Contemporary Art in Richmond in October. 

"It's a great achievement for these young documentarians," said Dr. Bill Oglesby, who taught the class.

The documentary was produced by Robertson School students Sean Keating, Kassidy McDaniel-Hammond and Brian Maresco and explored the controversy on Confederate monuments. It aired as part of VCU InDepth on WCVE last fall semester. 

"At a time when it is difficult to talk about Confederate monuments in a thoughtful, unemotional way, Sean Keating, Kassidy McDaniel-Hammond and Brian Maresco achieved just that with representatives on both sides of the controversy with their excellent mini-documentary Stuck in Stone," said Oglesby. "We are proud that this piece has been selected to be screened at this fall's Poe Film Festival at VCU's Institute for Contemporary Art in late October."
