"The New Public" depicts the successes and struggles of seven teachers and 108 students who start BCAM, a small Bedford-Stuyvesant high school, directed by my friend and neighbor Jyllian Gunther.
The effort begins with confidence and hope -- and no small degree of naivete -- and its founders experience just as much of an education as the students BCAM serves. Check it out here - catch it at the Boulder International Film Festival next month.
