Film Series: American Promise

2013. USA. Dir: Joe Brewster, Michele Stephenson. Documentary. 135 min. 

This intimate, contemplative doc tracks two African-American boys and their families over 13 years, as they navigate the opportunities and frustrations of an America still coming of age on issues of race, class, and privilege. The directors – parents of one of the young men – thoroughly explore the boys’ experiences at a prestigious NYC private school with a new commitment to “diversity.”
