Thanks to the Department of Performing & Screen Arts, we are able to bring to you student films created as early as 2002. After Bud, we bring to you Su Lele –  Running Shoes, written by Albert Vea and directed by Nicola Cresswell. The short film is about a boy who has to battle his living world around him to gain what he really wants for himself in life. It was screened on Pollywood Shorts 2006.
