An Education in Apathy

Evodie Ngoy created this digital story as part of Wide Angle’s fall 2011 Mentoring Video Project curriculum. Here is what Evodie has to say about her film:

My film is about my personal experience growing up in the Congo and then coming to the USA. In the Congo, people do not have access to education. When I came to the USA, I was expecting that everything in school would be proper and that the students would be well-behaved. But, school here is the opposite of what I expected. It makes me really sad, because students in other parts of the world don’t get to go to school for free. I just want everyone to take education seriously.
