Event Details

Please join Public Broadcasting Atlanta for a FREE screening of The Graduates/Los Graduados.

Gustavo Madrigal, from Griffin Georgia, is one of the students featured into the documentary.

The Graduates/Los Graduados explores pressing issues in education today through the eyes of six Latino and Latina students from across the United States. More than a survey of contemporary policy debates, the bilingual film offers first-hand perspectives on key challenges facing Latino high school students and their families, educators, and community leaders. It is the story of the graduates who will make up America’s future. 

The public screening on October 24th will feature the "Boys" hour of the two-part documentary - which highlights students from Griffin, GA. The second hour, "Girls," will be screened online from www.AmericanGraduateATL.org on November 7th. Following the screenings, we'll keep the discussion going online by releasing 5 short documentaries that feature individual students, on the American Graduate website.

 

Thursday, October 24, 2013 at the Latin American Association (LAA)

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the film showing from 7-8 p.m.
