Scott Aharoni ’16 wins at Sedona Film Festival
Scott Aharoni’s film BARDO, which was shown in last year’s Student Film Festival, won the Best Independent Spirit Award at the Sedona International Film Festival. Sedona, an annual nine-day film festival in Sedona, Arizona, is recognized as one of the top festivals in the nation. The festival celebrates current independent film from around the world – from features to shorts, documentaries to animation and foreign films to student films.
BARDO is the story of how, after a long night working the New York City streets as a taxi driver, Johnny finds himself frustrated, on edge and seeking an escape. While pulled over and getting ready to indulge, he is interrupted by Lily, an old woman insisting on a ride home. Reluctantly he agrees to drive her and what follows is an unexpected journey.
