Katie Duggan ’19 – Unforgettable Princeton

Honorable Mention

I’m Katie, a member of the class of 2019 from Ridgewood, New Jersey. At Princeton, I study English, along with creative writing and theater. I was inspired to make this video based on the experience of writing my English junior paper on the 1962 French film La Jetée. The film explores time travel and the nature of memory, and is constructed almost entirely of still photos. Watching this film in a class at the Lewis Center was a formative experience for me, and revisiting it in my independent work prompted me to reflect on all the individual memories and photographs that I have of my Princeton experience thus far. I realized is not any single moment, but the way these moments interact, that define my experience.
