CONGRATULATIONS MARIA!

PosterSEPT2015We're proud to announce that MARIA VICTORIA HERNANDEZ (SII Class of 2006) has won the Best Documentary Prize at the Olleh International Smartphone Film Festival in South Korea for her film, "Sanitation." 

"Sanitation" is the story of Wilito - a 13 year old boy who lives in Los Praditos, a slum in the heart of Santo Domingo, the capital city of Dominican Republic. It is in slums like this where a vast part of the working class lives. They have water and electricity shortages, being Sundays, the only day of the week they receive water. This micro-documentary follows Wilito through a typical Sunday in his "barrio".
