Journey East: Finding Your Place
A documentary film produced by Leland and Gray Alumn, Giannina Gaspero-Beckstrom (2015), Alana Redden (2014), and Fraser Query (2014).
They were all participants of the Journey East program in 2012 and when given the opportunity to create this film, they all jumped in. They really did a wonderful job at capturing the journey as well as the deeper connections made along the way.
