Class Divide (2016)
For High Schools
At the intersection of West 26th Street and 10th Avenue in New York City, two communities are separated by more than a boulevard. On one side, are an elite private school and luxury condos; public-housing that is home to thousands underserved NYC residents occupies the other.  In Class Divide, young people on both sides of the gap offer honest insights and challenge common perceptions about inequality. Directed by Marc Levin.
