Cinema Studies students' viral video and its powerful message

Cinema Studies students Samantha Stendal and Aaron Blanton published a 26 second video "A Needed Response," to the victim blaming in the media of a rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio.

Whitney Haskin, Cinema Studies Major

“Sometimes I take a step back and think about how lucky I am to love what I study and that I look forward to going to class. The faculty and students are phenomenal and utilize collaboration, hands-on learning, and various perspectives to achieve a higher academic understanding of cinema.  I would recommend this major to any prospective or current student at the University of Oregon.”

Meet Cinema Studies Director, Dr. Michael Aronson

“Cinema Studies is unique at Oregon for being inter-unit.  Cinema Studies involves both faculty and courses from the College of Arts & Science, Architecture and Allied Arts, and the School of Journalism & Communication. The great thing about Cinema Studies here is that it really does encompass all that cinema encompasses in the real world, everything from the most experimental video art, to PBS documentaries, to Hollywood films and TV shows.
