Parish Episcopal School is proud to be a sponsor of the DFW South Asian Film Festival (SAFF), held February 27-March 1, 2015 at the Angelika Theater in Plano.
Head of School Dave Monaco will speak during the introduction of the closing night feature film "Rough Book." This movie takes a hard look at the education system in India in 2014, and is told through the eyes of a teacher who rallies through a divorce with a corrupt income tax officer to become a Physics teacher. Her pupils are in the D division - "D" sarcastically referred to as 'duffers' within the school by both the students and other teachers. Find out how the teacher rebels against the system to fight for her students so they can pass the entrance examinations into the Indian Institute of Technology.
Parish is excited about this partnership, and would like to thank current parent Ami Doshi for making this connection. The DFW SAFF will showcase Texas premieres of features, shorts and documentaries, all chosen to engage, educate and inspire audiences. They have chosen a wide range of films exploring issues that affect South Asians living and working in America, as well as in South Asia.
We hope you can join Parish at the Film Festival in support of the DFW SAFF vision – “to promote the perspectives and voices of the South Asian community by serving, organizing and advocating South Asian culture in the Greater Dallas Metroplex area through cinema.”
