Battling for the safety of our personal memories isn't something people do on a daily basis, but for Carney Sommen it becomes a ritual that tests his mental institutions and breaks the wall that protects his shielded past.

Battling for the safety of our personal memories isn't something people do on a daily basis, but for Carney Sommen it becomes a ritual that tests his mental institutions and breaks the wall that protects his shielded past.

Students of the Cinema Du Cannes Project recently held the premiere presentation of their film Carney's Darkness and their documentary, Cinema Du Cannes.

The Cinema Du Cannes Project is dedicated to teaching the art of cinematic digital storytelling and digital media production to young people. The students work as directors, writers, producers, actors, cinematographers, composers, publicists and many other roles on the project. This year, students from all three high schools in the Pflugerville Independent School District are collaborating together to produce films to submit to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
