PSIFF Student Day 2015

On January 12th, 150 DATA students joined 850 of their peers from across the Coachella Valley for the Palm Springs Film Society's 2015 Student Screening Day.

They were treated to a great lunch and two excellent short films

Keep On Keepin' On about legendary jazz trumpet player Clark Terry and his friendship with his gifted and blind student pianist Justin Kauflin. Justin also surprised the audience by making an appearance after the film to play a tune and answer questions with Australian director Alan Hicks.

Natural Sciences about a 12 year-old girl who struggles with adolescence in the remote hills of Argentina and sets off on an adventure to find a father who she has never met.

Both films were powerful and very well received by everyone in attendance. A huge thanks to the Palm Springs Film Society and to PSUSD's Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator Louisa Castrodale for making this annual event happen for students valley-wide.
