Documentary Film about 5 MIT students from Africa


February 12, 2013

One Day I Too Go Fly is a four year chronicle of how five students from Tanzania, Nigeria, Rwanda and Zimbabwe become engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  As they arrive from varied African backgrounds and immerse themselves in the challenge of rigorous academics and navigating a new world, they receive an elite education and grow into their adult selves.  Director/Producer Arthur Musah, also an MIT Alum, recently acquired the funding necessary to produce this film as well as strong, enthusiastic Institute support.  Musah, who holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from EECS (2002, 2004), has been given unprecedented permission to film extensively on campus.  Supported by former President Paul Gray and the International Students Office as well as by many Kickstarter donors.  See the teaser for the film below.
