Screening  |  Beyond Boundaries: Dare to be Diverse Film Series: The Bad Kids

Thursday, April 13, 2017, 7 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

The Bad Kids is an observational documentary that chronicles one extraordinary principal’s mission to realize the potential of these students whom the system has deemed lost causes. Employing a verité approach during a year at the school, our film follows Principal Vonda Viland as she coaches three at-risk teens––a new father who can’t support his family, a young woman grappling with sexual abuse, and an angry young man from an unstable home––through the traumas and obstacles that rob them of their spirit and threaten their goal of a high school diploma.

Free with gallery admission.
