A Premiere Screening from
EVC’s Youth Documentary Workshop
January 10, 2011

Shadows of Ignorance – Combining personal stories with historical and contemporary struggles for gay rights, this powerful documentary gives voice to the painful discrimination and in some cases, acceptance, that LGBT youth experience with their friends and family on a daily basis.

Crossing Waters: The Story of Liberian Youth in Staten Island – Relocated to Staten Island after a brutal civil war, Liberian youth and their families find a new set of challenges. EVC youth producers document the Liberians’ struggles to overcome adversity with the support of their local school and community centers, as they heal from the traumas of war and make a new life here. The Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting provided mentoring for this project.
