CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Clemson University student Madison Williams graduates on May 11, but she'll be trading the cap and gown for the red carpet. 

Williams' five-minute documentary will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The documentary, "136", tells the story of a Bryson Carter, passionate Clemson fan who has attended 136 consecutive football games, despite losing his eye sight.

Williams said she met Carter on their way to the 2016 Fiesta Bowl. 

"Bryson and I shared a ride to the train station in Arizona and he started talking about his passion for football. He told me he visualizes the game through the picture the announcers and the energy of the fans pain in his mind," Williams said. "Meeting one of Clemson's greatest ambassadors and hearing his love of Clemson football inspired me to tell others about what a special Bryson is and his devotion to never missing a game." 

The film will be screened as part of the festival's Short Film Coroner, which will showcase 29 other films produced by college students. 

“Missing graduation is difficult, but this is an opportunity of a lifetime. I owe it to myself and to all those who helped me on this journey to make it to this event," Williams said.
