http://youtu.be/-2TE6-bJNd4

Throughout the year, MSU’s Residential College in the Arts and Humanities brings in speakers and artists from around the country for their Wednesday Night Live series. This week they welcomed filmmaker Erik Proulx, who screened his short film "Lemonade: Detroit." His latest film “365 Days: A year in Happy Valley”  re-examines  the Penn State scandal and looks at how the community coping.

Current State's Emanuele Berry speaks with Proulx about his work and impressions of Detroit, along with the current climate in Happy Valley. He says as a survivor of child abuse himself, he was reluctant at first to make the Penn State film.
