The National Foreign Language Resource Center at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa will show the acclaimed film Most Likely to Succeed at Moore Hall 258 (on the Mānoa campus), 1890 East-West Road, as part of the 2017 Project-Based Language Learning Intensive Summer Institute. This free event will be held on Friday, August 4, 2017 at 4:30 p.m.

RSVP is required, as seats are limited; contact Stephen Tschudi (tel 808-349-3213).

Most Likely to Succeed offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of — if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. Directed by renowned documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and AFI DOCS. It’s been featured at leading conferences on education, including ASU/GSV, SxSWedu, Harvard/GoldmanSachs, and NewSchools Venture Fund. Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school. In the past year, more than 2,300 communities have booked a screening of Most Likely to Succeed.

The purpose of this event is to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents, and students about how current obstacles can be overcome and steps towards change can be taken on a local level. These conversations have resulted in community-wide commitments to moving forward, transformational initiatives, and real change.
