Students of Jamshedpur have time and again proved their valour in various domains of arts and education. With yet another achievement in the golden pages of Jamshedpur, Dulcie Suri an alumnus of Sacred heart Convent School and currently a final year student of Lovely Professional University’s (LPU) Film and Television Production Programme in Jalandhar, Punjab has been selected by America’s Indiana University on full-scholarship for workshop on film-making.
Selected as one among 15 students from across India, Jamshedpur girl Dulcie Suri will be in a team of students from Pakistan and other cities of Punjab to jointly work on a workshop dealing with cultural connection and geographic barriers. The theme of the workshop is ‘Beyond Borders: A Workshop of Filmmaking across the Punjab Region’ of India & Pakistan.
After bagging the scholarship, Dulcie Suri, who passed out of Sacred heart Convent School in 2014, said, “My revolutionary projects of short films making, script writing, essays, editing, dubbing, budgeting, set-designing & other related works created at LPU made me successful in gaining this coveted opportunity. Under the versatile guidance of all of my teachers at LPU; I have been able to touch socially prevalent serious problems including terrorism, transgender issue, and even female genital mutation.”
She added, “One of my short films ‘Unfortunate Day’ is about killing of hundreds of innocent school children in Peshawar (Pakistan) few years back. Another, ‘Blood Donation’ mockingly criticizes growing suicidal attempts among young students and inspires for blood and body parts donations to help other living ones. My Ad-Film ‘Men will be Men” reveals man’s dominance in the society.
All of these works are of global importance and awakening, the creative thinking and social feeling for which was instilled in me only by my teachers, fellow friends and great environment of global diversity at LPU.”
The prestigious scholarship includes all air-fares, hostel & food fees, programme fees and expenses for various projects covered during the workshop. Team Simply JSR congratulate Dulcie Suri on her acheivement and wish her all the best for the future endeavours, you have made the city proud. 🙂
