The 2017 total solar eclipse was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated events in recent history, with Carbondale, Illinois smack in the spot of longest duration. Students, staff and faculty of Southern Illinois University's College of Mass Communication and Media Arts taped hundreds of hours of eclipse-related planning and interviews even before they captured this natural wonder above Southern Illinois. The resulting documentary, In the Shadow, highlights the history, the science and, above all, the sublime human experience of witnessing a total solar eclipse in Southern Illinois on August 21, 2017.
