Film Series: Eighth Grade

2018. USA. Dir: Bo Burnham. With Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton. 94 min.

Burnham’s directorial debut captures the angst of middle school through the eyes of a painfully shy teenager navigating her final days of eighth grade. This honest portrait of the messy trials, triumphs, and tribulations of modern adolescence invites you to relive your awkward memories and congratulate your younger self for making it through to the other side.

This screening is held in conjunction with Project No Red Zone, a campaign to raise awareness of the first six weeks of school when students are most vulnerable to sexual assault and sexual violence.
