A short doc I produced and directed with Jamal Joseph will screen at the 10th NYC Indie Film Festival and the 14th Harlem International Film Festival this May. These screenings add to an already successful festival run that includes the New York Short Film Festival and New Filmmakers New York from last Fall among others.
'We The Children' is a short documentary about children's thoughts and feelings on politics. Sparked by the 2016 elections results, we witness how a group of children at a democratic school in Harlem responds to their concern about the direction their country might take as a result of the new Presidency. Through an ongoing journey that involves their own civic law education, community involvement, and activism, they ultimately question the general perception of children's limited role in politics and open the door for further discussion.
