Feature-length Documentary - Directed by Katharine Mahalic 

Imagine how crazy things may get when a group of foreign exchange students and rural American locals film their entire school year. This documentary captures the exchange students, two of whom are from Muslim backgrounds, learning to live the 'American Way' as they sink their teeth into rural Oregon and become the stars of their high school football team. 


Welcome to Unity is a lighthearted, teen angst film that voyeuristically illustrates that adolescence is a universal experience.
