10 am – 1 pm
Middle school students, along with their teachers, view award-winning documentaries that examine issues such as identity, culture, and tolerance. Each day of film screenings features post-film discussions and a pizza lunch.
Today's film: I Learn America
More than 300 teenagers from 50 countries attend Brooklyn’s International High School at Lafayette, a public school dedicated to serving newly arrived immigrants. In I Learn America, these students strive to master English, adapt to families they have not seen in years, confront the universal trials of adolescence, and search for a future they can claim as their own.
Directed by Jean-Michel Dissard and Gitte Peng
