Film: The Bad Kids

Sponsored by: Indie Lens Pop-Up

Join the Yale Film Study Center and CPTV for a special advance screening of THE BAD KIDS, a new documentary by Keith Fulton & Lou Pepe, followed by a community discussion.

Located in an impoverished Mojave Desert community, Black Rock Continuation High School is an alternative, a lifeline, and a last chance for at-risk students with little hope of graduating from a traditional high school. This coming-of-age story shows extraordinary educators and talented students combatting the crippling effects of poverty in the lives of these so-called “bad kids.” The film won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival.

Featuring upcoming documentaries from the Peabody Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Indie Lens Pop-up is presented in Connecticut by the Yale Film Study Center, CPTV, ITVS, and Independent Lens.
