UR Student Film Festival

UR Student Documentary Films @ Student Film Festival.  Free! I believe this is the first of its’ kind at UR.

From press release:

Three student documentaries at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 26 in the Adams Auditorium, Boatwright Library.

“Slam Richmond” – Poetry slams are competitive performances that are gritty and contemporary. The Richmond team finished 17th at the national championship last year. This documentary, the class project in Documentary II, takes you behind the scenes as six poets compete for four slots on the Richmond team.

“Pebbles in the Road” – The uplifting story of a homeless 16-year-old girl’s shot at musical stardom. A film by Logan Turner.

“State of Sangha” – This film takes you into the “Golden Land” of Burmese Buddhism and shows how the Buddhists there make finding freedom in one of the world’s most oppressive military dictatorships possible. A film by Theodore Martland.
