This month on C-SPAN, the public affairs network has been airing short documentaries created by Jenks High School students, winners in the network's annual Student Cam video documentary competition. Leviathan Lee and Mason Chow won 1st Prize for their documentary on the opioid crisis "200,000."
Several other Jenks student entries won awards which featured over 5400 entries nationwide. This is a common occurrence for the documentary filmmaking program at Jenks. My guest today is their teacher Clifton Raphael. His students have won a regional Emmy and numerous awards and fellowships over the years. Today, Jenks graduates are working in Hollywood and making documentary films as a career.
