Crash Course in Counter Cinema Projects

The following films were made during Crash Course in Counter Cinema experiences from 2018-2019. Each has the actual film the students created and a behind the scenes featurette below.

These projects were made in collaboration with the Refugee and Immigrant Center – Asian Association of Utah.

“Best Day”

A young woman tries to have her best day but is constantly challenged by things standing in her way.

“Bus Stop”

Two refugees wait at a bus stop and discuss how their lives have gone up to this point.


A group of young latino students have to decide whether to go somewhere stupid or not.

We will continue to update with examples of work as we run programs.
