ALC Film students took a trip to the Rose Wagner Theatre to see two films as part of the Sundance Film Festival. The first film, "Dark Horse" is about a small town in Wales whose community members all pitched in to raise a race horse and watch it compete (and win) against other horses owned by billionaires. Then they saw "Most Likely to Succeed" which is about the current educational system in the U.S. and how some schools are trying to look to the future to train innovative thinkers and creators. It was directed by Greg Whitely, who has also directed "Mitt" and "New York Doll." Students were able to talk with him for about 15 minutes after the screening.
