Sarah's approach to the community theme stemmed from her love of economics, and specifically her interest in Dr. Aguirre's course, Economics of Development. In this course, students discuss the human family as the most basic unit of community and the high impact it has on society - both socially and economically. When asked to comment on her inspiration for the film, Sarah stated:
"I was inspired by The Catholic University of America's School of Business and Economics and the integral approach to economic development. The integral approach means studying more than the immediate effects of policy or implementation. It means observing the long term effects; namely, observing its effect on the common good, which is more than the aggregate of the effects on the individuals. It includes how people interact with one another--something that can only be seen in the long run"We welcome you to watch Sarah's film below, or find it here.
