It's Not Easy Crossing Oceans

9:00am - 9:30am

This documentary explores the challenges of international students, along with UBC’s drive to become more “international” and global minded. By breaking down a personal story of logistical struggles to reaching Canada, along with the administration’s view of these problems, the documentary establishes a necessity of becoming a diverse campus lying not in tolerance, but understanding difference. It features interviews of International Student Development officials, as well as the UBC Global Lounge team in hopes of reflecting what it means to be diverse and international-oriented at the UBC Vancouver campus.

Produced by Maham Kamal Khanum for CiTR Docs Season 2. Find more info here:
