The winners of the PDN Edu Student Photo Contest   were announced last week. Alexander Kreher, of Virginia Commonwealth University, won the multimedia/video category
with an 18-minute short film, “Street Dreams,” about the young woman who became the first female to run alone and unsupported across the United States. She made the 2,867 mile-run to raise $17,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

In his other video submission, a piece called “All Those Wonderful Things,” Kreher uses a mix of stills, video and a compelling audio interview to tell the story of one woman’s struggles with hoarding, the financial problems it creates, and the disappointment she feels about her life. Kreher made that four-and-a-half minute piece while studying at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine.

“All Those Wonderful Things” can be found on Vimeo.
