In 2017, Digife won their biggest project to date. We were selected by Northwestern University to film, edit, and produce a documentary that will go down in history. In 1968, more than 100 Northwestern students peacefully occupied the Bursar’s Office to protest the black student experience. The occupation lasted 38 hours, ending with a negotiated resolution in which the administration responded to a list of eight student demands.
After exactly 350 days, our small team of 3 traveled to nearly 10 cities across the east coast, and countless hours of editing, we created a film that we couldn't be more proud to share with our friends, family, and supporters. Evanston, IL became our second home, and we heard empowering stories that will continue to inspire a nation.
We invite you to experience this film in person and hear first hand accounts from the the Digife team of filmmakers who brought Northwestern's and the Black Alumni Association's vision to life. We invite you to experience "The Takeover".
