Each Spring, students in Prof. Jeffrey Ruoff's Film 30: Documentary Filmmaking class profile local celebrities and dive deep into pockets of life in the Upper Valley. Past films focused on comedian Cindy Pierce, Dartmouth Gospel Choir director Walt Cunningham and bear caregiver Ben Kilham. 

Here's the slate of short documentaries for this year's showcase:

The Other Side/El Otro Lado
D: Nick Dahl, Jimmy Krupka, Claire Wigglesworth, Jack Marino
The documentary will examine the lives of migrant workers working in the Upper Valley, giving voice to their stories and light to their existences. We've begun to uncover the topics that are most important to cover, including current living conditions for the workers, what brings them to rural New England, how they physically arrived here, their relationship with their labor and, more generally, their stories.

Take Heed: Inside the World of Canoe Racing
D: Yukyeong Jang, Hayden Miller, Gavin Walsh, Isis Ginyard

In New England, canoeing groups such as the New England Canoe and Kayak Racing Association (NECKRA) hold competitions year-round, bringing together people of all ages. With the guidance of Peter Heed, former New Hampshire attorney general and seven-time national canoe racing champion, this project takes a look at the little-known sport of paddling and its importance to a wide community.

The Little Store
D: Liz Fahrmeier, Eddie Mo, Lucia Hartray, Lenox Huh

There are delis and then there is the Marsh Brothers Deli at the Little Store in downtown Lebanon, New Hampshire. Since 2017, brothers Scott and Bud Marsh have been serving home-smoked and barbecued meats, sandwiches and baked goods to hungry Dartmouth students, tradesmen and everyone in between.
