Poly Upper School’s First Global Initiatives Project (GIP)
The Poly Upper School congregated in a packed Garland Theatre this past Monday for its first Global Initiatives Project (GIP) event, the screening of “The Good Lie,” a feature film about the journey of three Lost Boys and one Lost Girl. The film chronicles their perilous journey across southern Sudan to a Kenyan refugee camp, and then onto Kansas City, where the Lost Boys face many cross cultural challenges. After the film, the award-winning screenwriter Margaret Nagle and Kuoth Wiel, one of the film’s female leads, joined the audience for an engaging discussion about the film, the Sudanese Civil War, and the current refugee crisis.
