Here are some great course connections to this film.
Justine Gerns and Jason Borges will be hosting a screening of The First Grader. The film is based on the true story of Kimani Maruge, a Kenyan man who enrolled in elementary education at the age of 84 after the Kenyan government announced universal and free elementary education in 2003. The film had a limited theatrical run which sadly did not include our local theatres. We’re excited to bring this powerful story to campus. Here’s the trailer:
We hope that you can join us! If any faculty wish to offer extra-credit to their students who attend, Jason will offer to take attendance.
