Life Celebrates Diversity

Written & Directed by Connor Clements
Niall Wright as James!/Niall_Wright

Northern Ireland - 2008
Shot at 720p on the JVC GY-HD200

Young James struggles as the outsider kid at his school. His teacher, Mr. Sutherland, is the only person he feels he can connect with. When James finally puts a voice to his feelings, Mr. Sutherland's response isn't what James had hoped for.
