Professor Suja Thomas's documentary worked received another boost this fall when she was announced as the winner of the annual Ready, Set, Pitch! contest. Put on by the Center for Asian American Media, the contest showcased diverse Asian American storytelling from emerging documentary filmmakers from the Midwest and South. Thomas's as-yet-untitled documentary on the U.S. court system and the importance of democracy was awarded $10,000 in support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, which will help her complete her project. This honor follows a year-long CAAM Fellowship for Thomas, which paired her and other fellows with established professionals in the field.
