Youth Produced Films Disrupting Dominant Narratives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will screen our latest film conceived, written, directed and produced by high school youth. Critical of dominant constructions of beauty, these youth chose to capture the stories of young people striving to embrace their beauty in a white supremist culture. After the screening, the youth producers will offer brief presentations on the connection of using film production for critical pedagogy, counter-storytelling, and community organizing. We also engage the audience in dialogue circles.
