#WCW Fran Ito - they don't make them like her anymore. .... Be sure to check out out Fran's interview at www.vconline.org.
"If you’re a senior, and you’re newly retired, and you’re looking for something to do, this [Digital Histories] is a wonderful program. It gets you off your feet. It makes you go out. Interact with people. Makes you think. Really keeps your mind active. It’s a social thing, because we meet once a week. It has many aspects to it. You develop a camaraderie. All these people in the class, they’re highly educated and they all come to have one interest — to make a film." ....
