Kids these days often leave me scratching my head. However, in what I would describe as making my entire scholastic career look like an extended daycare session, 17-year-old Alex Fischman created La Vieja Quinta.
Fischman, a student at Colegio Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Lima, Peru, created the short film for a high school project. It is an impressive film for someone of any age, let alone a high schooler, and is unlike any other I’ve seen produced from students in a similar age bracket. With elements of humor and a look at human connection, it carries with it a deep sense of emotion.
