Where: The Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater 144 West 65th Street (Between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue) HopStop Map for 144 West 65th Street Spanning three decades worth of extraordinary work, the EVC Retrospective Series captures moments in New York’s history through the fresh, but unblinking eyes of emerging teen filmmakers. With health care in the news, we kick off our third season with documentaries on three critical public health issues: teen smoking, environmental hazards, and youth depression.


Breathing Easy: Environmental Hazards in Public Housing (2012, 23m)

EVC youth producers bring their cameras to their fellow student’s mold-infested Harlem apartment, documenting their struggles with asthma and local environmental justice advocates’ efforts to help a family in need.


A Clouded View (2011, 24m)

An inside look at corporate marketing, stress and peer pressure that makes thousands of teenagers pick up their first cigarette everyday, what the addiction means to them and their families, and how community health workers at Harlem Hospital are helping them kick the habit.


The War Within: Youth Depression (2009, 27m)

Youth tell harrowing, yet life-affirming stories of their struggles with depression and the treatments they have found to cope with it.

 ********************************************** EVC is proud to partner with the Film Society of Lincoln Center to present the retrospective series, THROUGH OUR EYES: Three Decades of EVC Youth Documentaries. Each Program will be screened twice at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater, with an afternoon screening for school audiences and an evening screening for general audiences. Both screenings will be followed by a question-and-answer session with producers from the short films featured in the programs.
