Building understanding, breaking down barriers [video]

Shamauri Brown-Young ’20 hopes his film ultimately breaks down barriers.

While on a border immersion trip in spring of 2017, the Saint Mary’s University student videoed the compelling stories of students who must cross the international border between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on a daily basis.

Brown-Young, a computer science major and communications minor, said he had no idea what to expect when he and 11 other Saint Mary’s students experienced a closer look at the divided border region.

By debuting his film “Conversations Near the Border” Feb. 11 during this year’s Frozen River Film Festival, the Chicago native was able to share what he learned with a broader audience.
