SYNOPSIS: Under 21 is an intimate portrait of how two NYC youth get access to alcohol, why they drink, and the potential consequences. Taking the spotlight of the individual consumer, this documentary explores how the drinking culture and oversaturation of alcohol ads in the Lower East Side and Upper East Side influence young people from those neighborhoods.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Under 21 was produced by high school students who participated in EVC’s Fall 2012 Youth Documentary Workshop. Youth Documentary Workshop is a 15-week credit-bearing course that teaches high school students from underserved communities across New York City to research, shoot, and edit compelling documentaries that examine issues of immediate relevance in their lives.
This screening will be presented by EVC’s Youth Speakers Bureau, a community engagement program funded by the Partnership for a Healthier Brooklyn and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Check out the Youth Speakers Bureau blog at evcyouthpoweredvideo.wordpress.com.
