“A public screening of Admissions is a must at every educational institution that wishes to address the sensitive issues of cultural and religious differences. John Viscount’s film provides a rare opportunity to engage such differences, while building bridges in a manner that is both realistic and humane. Admissions is essential viewing for us all.”
