Algún lugar - Film Screening and Discussion

About to graduate from high school, Oliver, Moises, and Hemingway go on an emotional journey through the Dominican Republic in search of their life calling. Oliver needs to arrive at all costs in the remote town of Pedernales to say goodbye to his high school sweetheart before she moves away to New York. Hemingway seeks to escape his oppressive family and become a real writer in a society that despises authors. Moises is documenting the trip as a last tribute to his love of photography before enrolling in a career in civil engineering. A series of adventures triggered by strangers they meet on the road unexpectedly change their travel plans, causing the journey that began as a celebration of their friendship to end as a final farewell.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
