“Final Exam” a NOVA Student’s International File Collaboration

Dear Alexandria Village!

I wanted to take time to thank all who came out for the 2016 NOVA Student Film Festival! A great time was had by all. And those who could not make it, we know you were with us in spirit.  I know it is finals’ week, so I figured to help you decompress in between grading and wrapping things up for the semester, I would share the film that was a collaboration between NOVA Alexandria Film students and my film students from Ethiopia from my Fulbright project.

Our motto: Building bridges across continents through film! I hope you enjoy watching the film as much as I enjoyed not only the making of it but most importantly our students learning about a reality from a different part of the world.

I present to you: “Final Exam”

Have a great end of the semester!
