"STRIVING FOR A BETTER FUTURE, STRUGGLING TO BE A STUDENT" will feature four short documentary films that will bring us from Afghanistan to Senegal, to China, and to Myanmar (Burma). Each unique work tells the stories of students, young and old, striving to pursue the human right to an education. We will learn of the social, economic, and geographic barriers that challenge the female subjects of the films in their quest to fulfill their potential.
