First London Preview Screening

Posted by admin - in Blog, Screenings - 3 Comments

Our first preview screening in London took place yesterday at the Soho Screening Rooms with a packed audience of TV industry executives, friends and filmmakers.

The film generated much laughter and a few tears and was followed by a lively Q&A session with Alison and Duncan Clark, the producers.  There was  a lot of interest in the APSA program (and questions why the UK doesn’t have a similar program for its inner-city kids).  Also, many questions about what is happening now with Peter, Juanique, Jeffrey and Juanique.

It’s good to see that the film resonates with audiences outside of the US and that the story of the kids and their life-changing experience transcends national borders.
