Director's Statement

I made this with my friends, my ex-teachers and I wanted to show the experiences we went through. This is a very personal film to me, everything said by those interviewed are things I can personally corroborate. This is just a small piece of a much larger conversation we need to have, please take a moment after viewing to assess your place in changing the education system for the better. Thank you.
