Submitted by brenda.burr on Wed, 01/30/2019 - 19:37

Our Literature and Film students, taught by Mr. Ryan, got the rare privilege of attending a Sundance Film Festival screening as part of the education grant offered by the festival. The students saw the film, "Gaza," and got to attend a Q & A session with director and actors! "Gaza," a 90-minute film, is among 12 contestants in the World Cinema Documentary competition at Sundance. Directed by award-winning Irish film makers Garry Keane and Andrew McConnell, the work takes a look at everyday life in Gaza, from wars and their traumas to young people's pastimes and aspirations.
