Allow us to introduce you to the filmmaking team selected to produce our first documentary around the events of the 1968 Bursar’s Office Takeover at Northwestern University. Digital Café is a full service, Chicago-based video production company based in Chicago.

Digital Café will craft the story about the 1968 Black student takeover of the Bursar’s office (The Takeover), including events leading up to the event and the subsequent impact on Black student life, the NU administration and its surrounding communities. The documentary will be a 60 to 90-minute documentary film package from conception to completion that will capture compelling stories of students and others that contributed to, participated and were affected by The Takeover. The film will be premiered at the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the 1968 Takeover of the Bursar’s Office, during the weekend of May 3rd-7th. Details will follow.
