"It was amazing to learn more about the IINE, a refugee resettlement agency one hour away from Dartmouth's campus, and I hope that we as a campus can make an effort to support the organization and its mission."

"Two years ago, while the world was deeply entrenched in the chaos and gloom of the pandemic, I was craving freedom; freedom from restrictions, mandates, and especially freedom from my home. When I hopped on my board for the first time in august of 2020, I just wanted to renew my enthusiasm for living. It was a desperate search for something I could look forward to everyday.

Skateboarding did that, and much more for me. The sport gave me community, joy, camaraderie, and a freedom deeper than I could conceive. Turning my attention to the Upper Valley, I sought to capture the joy and companionship of community of skaters in Lebanon, NH. What emerged is this documentary short film."

"I think Professor Ruoff chose an excellent selection of documentary films for the class to watch and analyze. The post-film discussions we had were some of my favorite moments of the quarter."
