I Cannot Go There....Music in Gaza

Posted by Coralee Holm, Director of Community & Alumni Relations

In many ways the concert was similar to others that Burlington College Director of Music and violinist Michael Dabroski has performed: a church full of eager faces, engaged by Michael’s animated play, enthralled with the symmetrical beauty of Bach’s chamber music. Only this December concert was in the Gaza Strip, a highly populated war-sieged strip of land, currently under flood conditions with unemployment exceeding 70 percent, attended by a people of Muslim and Christian faiths starved for art and music and freedom.

It was no easy task getting into (and out of) Gaza and included a chauffeured armored escort with the French consulate and a six-hour wait through a Hamas checkpoint. Currently the United States does not recognize the government of Gaza, and warns its citizens about entering the area.

Vermont has been forever branded as the state with breathtaking foliage and rolling green mountains.  Over the years, the state has become notorious for providing a sense of escape for the big-city-lovers around the country.  As a result, Vermont has molded itself into a place of serene, solitude away from crazy honking horns and hustle-and-bustle streets.  Because of this, Vermont cities tend to slip under the radar when naming regions for their lively city atmosphere.

Creative Minds Program Recognizes Burlington College Student

Burlington College could not stop buzzing after undergraduate, DeWolfe Morrow’s recent honor given at the 2013 Creative Minds in Cannes Film Program.  From homeless men on the sidewalk, to a night out similar to the 2009 film,The Hangover, Morrow captivated audiences across the globe with his five-minute film titled, “One Day,” focusing on the significance of equality among humans. 

The Contest

Morrow and his student colleague, Joseph Mulherin took flight to Cannes, France with the mindset of winning the competition within the program; they wanted to create a film that could make a difference.  When they arrived, their determination increased after on-looking the other 17 teams competing to win the same title.  After evaluating the requirements, Morrow went to work, pen in hand, as the screenplay for the short film poured onto paper.

The team of five had one week to complete a five-minute film with no copyright infringements.  Some teams chose to focus on diversity and other humanitarian issues, while Morrow chose to capture the essence of equality.  “One Day” was born from this idea, with the notion that every man is similar once stripped away of all materialistic possessions.  The camaraderie found between the two men in the film radiated out of the screen as “One Day” five-minute film was released to audience members in Cannes.
