Documentary to examine Durango’s uranium legacy

Award-winning filmmaker Carol Fleisher, right, works with Fort Lewis College students who are taking a Digital Video Production class. The students, led by assistant professor Stacey Sotosky, spent Thursday afternoon at the Center of Southwest Studies looking in the archives for documents and photos about the history of uranium mining in and around Durango. Sotosky and Fleisher are helping the students create a short documentary about uranium, which will be shown Oct. 17.
The archives at the Center of Southwest Studies are a resource for Fort Lewis College students in assistant professor Stacey Sotosky’s Digital Video Production class. They will use documents and photos for a documentary they are making about Durango’s history with uranium mining. The class received a $5,000 grant from the Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media to create the documentary.
