Tuesday

Senior Seminars

Today we honor and recognize the work the seniors have done both locally and with global impact.  Several seniors will be presenting their work and speaking to both the Upper and Middle school.

The Upper School will also be watching: Born Into Brothels.
Born into Brothels, by Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski, is the winner of the 77th annual Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. A tribute to the resiliency of childhood and the restorative power of art, Born into Brothels is a portrait of several unforgettable children who live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their mothers work as prostitutes. Zana Briski, a New York-based photographer, gives each of the children a camera and teaches them to look at the world with new eyes.

You can read more about the makers of the movie through an HBO interview with the film-maker and co-director, Ross Kaufman,
