For This Film Professor, '13' Proved to be a Very Lucky Number.

Film and Video Studies professor Hans Charles received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program for his work as co-director of photography for the movie 13th. Named for the 13th Amendment that ended U.S. slavery, the film received eight Emmy nominations plus an Oscar nomination for best documentary feature. Charles says his passion for the movie’s topics involving mass incarceration helped land him the job on the film.
