This video questions why people leave school or fail to graduate. Rather than focusing on the more commonly held idea of "drop outs," the video examines the trends of push-outs, and the many ways that young people feel discouraged by the educational system. Interviewing educational researchers, students, and each other, we try to present the stories behind the statistics.
Right To Act
Made in collaboration with DRUM and Ugnayan, this short film takes on the epidemic of the NYPD's unlawful and deceptive searches of young people of color. The filmmakers produced this film to create awareness of and support for the Right to Know Act, which aims to create transparency and accountability in everyday interactions between the NYPD and the public.
