"Shared Space" Film Screening March 21

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Brian Fuller will visit Covenant College March 21, 2011, for a screening and discussion of his new documentary film, Shared Space: Learning from the Mustard Seed School. Christine Metzger M.Ed. '96, the head of Mustard Seed School, will visit as well, contributing to the discussion.


"Christian school administrators and teachers will be challenged and blessed by this presentation as Shared Space documents the innovations and success of Christian schooling with a strong commitment to the arts in an urban setting," says Dr. Jim Drexler, chair of Covenant's education department.


The screening and discussion will take place from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Sanderson Hall auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

That same day, Fuller will be present for a screening and discussion of his short film The Hope of the Quechua. Shot in the Andes of Ecuador, the film chronicles the impact of holistic community development initiatives among the indigenous residents of the village of Illagua Chico.

"My favorite class so far has definitely been T.I.P.S. (Teaching In a Pluralistic Society)...It was such a hard semester enduring the readings, projects, and papers for that class, but through homework, the lectures, and the challenging discussions, I learned so much about how to be diversity-minded while teaching. Though the class is focused on educating children, the topics that were raised really encouraged me to broaden my worldview and place aside hidden biases within myself. "
