'One Light' shares the message of Guru Nanak with students at Atlanta Film Festival

Comments Email this Article
    Sunday, Apr 27, 2008 - Bradley Central High School and Walker Valley High School students in the broadcast media programs took a trip to Atlanta on April 18 to visit CNN studios, the ESPN Zone and the Atlanta Film Festival.

"The trip to Atlanta proved to be entertaining as well as enlightening for the group of students that are our filmmakers of today and newsmakers of tomorrow," said BCHS broadcast media teacher Gwen Shroyer.

The students experienced an informative behind-the-scenes tour at CNN Studios, and they enjoyed a meal at the ESPN Zone, after playing numerous arcade games in the ESPN Zone Arena.

The highlight of the trip was taking in the day's "Teen Screen" portion of the Atlanta Film Festival.

The screening at Midtown Cinema included an extraordinary short documentary by 13-year-old filmmaker Angad Singh titled "One Light," as well as a feature teen documentary spotlight, "Road to Rome," by several high school seniors from the Atlanta area.

After the screening, the broadcasting students were able to ask Singh questions about his project and his personal beliefs, which are shared throughout the informative film.

The Bradley County Schools broadcast media students are instructed by Shroyer at Bradley Central and Scott Webb at Walker Valley.
