If you have a fast internet connection and 15 minutes to spare, head over and download my friend Jes' documentary on her college trip to Bangladesh (in QuickTime .MOV format). She and a class of SHC students from Penn State studied and prepared for a year before going on this trip, but her short video was her own making (with some help from film whiz David and others). The feature is amazingly professional and the interviews are very insightful. It's definitely worth watching.
