Mark Bauerlein, English professor at Emory University, recently published an article in The New York Times questioning the point of college professors. In his opinion, students today view college solely as a mechanism for career preparation; thus, they have no desire to develop personal relationships with their instructors, no longer becoming their “disciples” as they […]

My aspirations for making films in Iran after college drew me to this festival, especially given that the judges were some prominent filmmakers flying in from Tehran.
