The Dominquez High School in Comptom, California--with an explosive culture of black and hispanic youths and dismal outlook of school life--has not produced a play in 20 years. They have nothing in the way of a theater program, nor a budget of any sort. This documentary chronicles the month and a half before the opening night play performance of their version of Our Town. Written by Sujit R. Varma

film movement
3 September 2003 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

This was definitely one of the most provocative, moving films I've seen. In a summer of such superficial Hollywood fare, it was refreshing to see such a wonderfully uplifting and real film. How do i purchase this amazing movie? What is film movement?
