"Bon Voyage ... and All That Lovely Stuff," which is about friendship and choosing a direction in life, was written and directed by Sara Lauren Hinojosa.
San Antonio area students Ashtyn Sonner, Christopher Rodriguez, Carl Silva and Gerardo Cazares appear in the film.
The film's story details the life of a young artist named June, who is torn between staying with her family and leaving to pursue her dreams of becoming an artist. To cope with the inner turmoil, June fills her life with spontaneity and make-believe.
Previous films by SAY Si students have been recognized with awards, invitations to the Sundance Film Festival, and broadcasts on KLRN-TV, San Antonio's Public Broadcasting System station.
