Student to premiere documentary of Japanese journey

Rath filmingSenior graphic design major Ashley Rath will host a free world-premiere screening of her documentary “Unbounded: What It’s Like to Study Abroad (It’s Awesome)” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, in Cherrywood Studio.

Filmed while Rath studied at the University of Tsukuba in Japan, “Unbounded” details a year in the life of studying overseas and experiencing a new culture. The project is made possible by Rath earning three very competitive scholarships—Bridging Scholarship for Japan, the Freeman-Asia Scholars Program and a Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship—to support her journey and documentary.

“I believe this video will educate students on Asia, interest students in studying abroad and perhaps inspire them to do the same,” Rath said in a 2006 college news article.

Cherrywood Studio is located at 20 Cemetery Road, just west of campus in the town of Oswego.
