I wanted to shoot this film since it’s about community and it’s one of the few things that has an affect on student’s life. Community in Minerva is part of the education as we all have different cultures and practices, and we learn to understand, respect and be open minded. However, this comes with costs, even though Minerva is a need-blind university whose student body is mostly composed of international students, the cost of setting your life in a different country every four months is very expensive. It’s so expensive that some of us (including me) has to work hard during summers to sustain our education. If I win the prize, it will not be just for my education, it’ll help me not lose the community I formed, keep in close contact with my friends from all over the world, and collect experiences.
