The New Public, documentary film

Event Description:

In 2006, a former DJ and point-guard, turned first-time principal opened a small public high school in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, N.Y. A third of the residents there lived below the poverty line and the graduation rate was 40 percent. Filmed over four years, the film goes in and out of the classroom to follow the journey of students, parents and educators striving to reconcile idealism with reality. Through the prism of one inner-city school using unconventional approaches and arts-based education, viewers witness complexities faced by urban public schools and communities everywhere.
Following a screening of the film, the filmmaker and the audience will engage in a discussion about the film. A reception with the filmmaker follows.

Presented by the Mary B. Martin School of the Arts, the 2013-14 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and local partner organizations.
