“The Fresno Language Project,” a Fresno State student-produced film that showcases the diversity of the region, premiered Nov. 21 at Fresno State’s North Gym 118.
“The Fresno Language Project” uses students, faculty, staff and community members to share pride points about Fresno in 53 languages including French, Spanish, Chinese, Swahili, Farsi and Latin.
The project was conceived by four Fresno State students who decided to use their class marketing project to highlight the diversity of the region.
Students Ray Caldwell, Estivan Gutierrez, Tamar Karkazian and Gurbhupinder “Gary” Sahota created the project and were supported by more than 30 student volunteers.
The students wrote a script that highlights little known facts and pride points about Fresno. They recruited others to read the script in various languages. This video incorporates more than 46 facts spoken in 53 different languages.
