"Shared Space" Film Screening March 21

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Brian Fuller will visit Covenant College March 21, 2011, for a screening and discussion of his new documentary film, Shared Space: Learning from the Mustard Seed School. Christine Metzger M.Ed. '96, the head of Mustard Seed School, will visit as well, contributing to the discussion.


"Christian school administrators and teachers will be challenged and blessed by this presentation as Shared Space documents the innovations and success of Christian schooling with a strong commitment to the arts in an urban setting," says Dr. Jim Drexler, chair of Covenant's education department.


The screening and discussion will take place from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Sanderson Hall auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

That same day, Fuller will be present for a screening and discussion of his short film The Hope of the Quechua. Shot in the Andes of Ecuador, the film chronicles the impact of holistic community development initiatives among the indigenous residents of the village of Illagua Chico.


The views expressed by Covenant-sponsored speakers and other College guests do not necessarily represent the views of Covenant College or its constituencies.

"I love being an elementary education major and having the close-knit community of elementary education majors. Covenant’s education department excels at providing opportunities for students to be in the classrooms throughout the entire degree program, even as early on as first semester of your freshman year in Intro to Teaching. I have really enjoyed spending time down at a school in Chattanooga this semester to give me hands-on experience to relate to what I am learning in my coursework."
