A documentary film, "Night School," by Emmy Award-winning director Andrew Cohn, will be presented at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Mayville State University Classroom Building Auditorium.
The film follows the journey of three adult learners who are earning their high school diplomas in hopes of bettering themselves and their situations.
In this absorbing documentary, Cohn explores how, for these individuals, finally earning their high school diplomas could be a life-changing achievement. He focuses on their individual pursuits, which are fraught with the challenges of daily life and other systemic roadblocks faced by many low income Americans.
A roundtable discussion is planned for 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Luckasen Room. Via Skype, Cohn will participate in that discussion and in a panel discussion after the film screening.
