Spring 2010 Documentary Workshop Premieres
Updated: Dec 23, 2021
EVC’s Basic Youth Documentary Workshop premiered What Lies Underneath America about the challenges for youth in reaching the American dream in this difficult economy and the Advanced Workshop documentary, As the Sun Comes Up, the Bricks Fall Down, which followed the stories of two workshop participants coping with the consequences of gentrification in their neighborhoods in the Bronx and Brooklyn. The film went beyond the problem, interviewing community activists who offered advice on what young people could do to preserve their communities.
