I'm late on this; It looks like a project that's worth your attention and contributions, so without me taking up more time explaining it, since, as of this posting, the campaign has 34 hours left to reach its goal, I'll just let the filmmakers speak for themselves, via the email I received, as well as the Kickstarter campaign video that follows; The project's Kickstarter campaign goal is $30,000, and, as of this posting, has reached $25,944, with 34 hours left to go; so it needs to raise an additional $4,056 in about 1 1/2 days.

I'm late on this; It looks like a project that's worth your attention and contributions, so without me taking up more time explaining it, since, as of this posting, the campaign has 34 hours left to reach its goal, I'll just let the filmmakers speak for themselves, via the email I received, as well as the Kickstarter campaign video that follows; The project's Kickstarter campaign goal is $30,000, and, as of this posting, has reached $25,944, with 34 hours left to go; so it needs to raise an additional $4,056 in about 1 1/2 days.

Not a lot of time, but also not entirely impossible, especially if you all pass this around, and it spreads so that others are made aware of it; Click HERE for the Kickstarter page, or click within the widget below:

ONE DAY I TOO GO FLY is a feature-length documentary following 5 African students who’ve come to the United States to begin studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. These students hail from Rwanda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Our documentary will follow them through their entire undergraduate careers.
 
As the world’s premier technological university, MIT’s mission, ‘to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century,’ fits developing countries' need for technological expertise. For the students hailing from developing countries, MIT’s save-the-world culture seems like a match made in heaven. But, after years of transformation made to thrive in a new culture, will the students stay true to their original passions to fill labor gaps back home? On the journey to reconcile their thirst for knowledge with their love for their countries, these students will face the same challenges as their American counterparts: being away from home for the first time, making friends, falling in love, and discovering who they are. 
 
Director/Producer, Arthur Musah, is no stranger to the world of MIT. Hailing from Ghana, Musah completed his undergraduate and graduate degrees at MIT, and went on to work for Texas Instruments. After a while spent in the technological industry, he decided to attend the University of Southern California’s Graduate Film Production Program. He’s now based in Boston, Massachusetts where he continues to film ONE DAY I TOO GO FLY. For the purposes of this film, MIT has granted him status as a Research Fellow.
 
Again, the project's Kickstarter campaign goal is $30,000, and, as of this posting, has reached $25,944, with 34 hours left to go; so it needs to raise an addition $4,056 in about 1 1/2 days. Not a lot of time, but also not entirely impossible, especially if you all pass this around, and it spreads so that others are made aware of it.

It's a project that I'd definitely like to see completed, and hopefully, so will you.
