First Thursday Film

on the way to school

Join us at Mason on Thursday, March 5, from 7:00 to 8:30pm for for this month’s First Thursday Film, On the Way to School. Tracking four groups of children in four far-flung locations – the Kenyan wilderness, the hills of Patagonia, the Atlas Mountains and the Bay of Bengal –  On the Way to School jumps among the four tweens as they each set off on impossibly long, arduous and sometimes life-threatening journeys to attend class in distant schoolhouses.
