Student Documentary: French Azilum and Joseph Priestley

In 2014-15 a group of students worked with Alf Siewers on a video documentary project about French Azilum and Joseph Priestley. The documentary, called “Utopian Dreams”, focuses on the aspirations of two separate communities to create their ideal societies. This documentary is beneficial not only for the students who created it but also for the community; they have both worked together in order to showcase the narratives that surrounded the Susquehanna River. The documentary was aired on the PBS station WVIA in Spring 2016. You can watch the documentary on the WVIA website here:
