Internationality : A Short Film

In conducting the interviews, the students interviewed often had responses that were especially interesting because they answered the question that motivated this project, that being: “What exactly is the International student experience and how do we go from being someone from Trinidad, China, etc., to being a Torontonian?” The answers that I used for this main piece each speak to this question directly, each analyzing issues such as “culture-shock,” the sense of loss in finding a new “home,” and finally, how the city of Toronto itself had affected this thinking. These individual perspectives are supplemented by research based on International students worldwide. Please do enjoy the Short Film.
