Community Cinema Vashon Presents:

The Graduates/Los Graduados - Part #2, “Boys Hour”

The Graduates/Los Graduados premieres on PBS Monday, Oct 28 & Nov 4 at 10/9c.
Un documental revelador sobre los desafíos que enfrentan los estudiantes Latinos en Estados Unidos. The Graduates/Los Graduados explores pressing issues in education today through the eyes of six Latino and Latina students from across the United States.
More than a survey of contemporary policy debates, the bilingual, two-part film offers first-hand perspectives on key challenges facing Latino high school students and their families, educators, and community leaders. It is the story of the graduates who will make up America’s future.
The film follows six teenagers — three girls and three boys — each with their own unique obstacles to overcome.
A running theme throughout all of the stories in The Graduates/Los Graduados is the importance of civic engagement, of students becoming involved in their schools and communities, and — crucially — having a say in their own futures.
Community Cinema is a national civic engagement initiative featuring free screenings and curricula for films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens.
