April Continues Her Award Spree, this time at DOCUTAH International Documentary Film Festival
April Fan, a member of the 2016 News Doc cohort, is tearing up the film festival circuit. After being announced as a finalist for the Student Academy Award and attending Hollyshorts Film Festival, she travels out to Utah, where she was awarded Emerging Artist at this year’s DOCUTAH International Documentary Film Festival.
April’s film, One Way Home, asks “What is the cost of a free government-sponsored education? Tibetan children, Tashi and YuJu were chosen to study in Mainland China joining thousands of Tibetan kids in the boarding schools for only Tibetans. These boarding schools prepare them to return to Tibet as China’s new elite, but the “first class” education comes with a deep loss of identity, language and culture.”
