DIFFS Presents: On Ye Vikings! A Documentary
Friday, February 17th | 5pm-8pm
Mallinckrodt Room 302

Film synopsis:
Two years after the shooting of unarmed Normandy Viking, Michael Brown, his grave (in St. Peters Cemetery directly across the street from his high school) remains unmarked for fear of vandalism, and his school district is still unaccredited. Director Terry Artis revisits the dismantling of his alma mater to give further insights through an intriguing chronology, and to provide his perspective on the possible way forward for Normandy and other schools systems that are of high minority/high poverty concentrations. This film is a prequel/sequel to Artis’ 2015 full-length documentary, The Dismantling of the Normandy School District.

About the Director:
Terry Artis is a Normandy High School graduate (class of 1982), he served as a contracted percussion clinician for the Normandy Senior High School marching band from 1982-1990, and he was elected to the Normandy School Board in 2013. On May 16, 2015, Mr. Artis graduated Summa Cum Laude (with the highest distinction) from the University of Missouri – St. Louis, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Studies with an emphasis on film. Mr. Artis has entered the Master of Fine Arts in Cinema and Media program at Lindenwood University.
