Beyond the Wall was screened in Boston as part of the NAFSA 2015 conference program.
Sally Schwartz, Associate Producer of the film and founder of the non-profit Globalize DC, introduced the film to an enthusiastic audience of educators from across the US.
Beyond The Wall has been selected to launch International Education Week with a screening hosted by the Department of Education on 17th November in Washington DC.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion including Jeffrey Wood, his mother and Stacy Yule, Jeffrey’s high school teacher.
The trailer for the film is online.
The new one-hour version of the film is in final stages of post-production and we hope to finally get the opportunity to screen the film in the US in Fall of 2014. Sign up for our mailing list (at bottom right of our news page) to keep updated on developments as they happen.
Beyond The Wall is the subject of a feature article in “Beijing Today”, written by journalist Annie Wei.
“Summer is when Beijing’s tourism peaks.
While many of the city’s temporary inhabitants are just passing through, some are students here for what could be a life-changing experience.
The new documentary Beyond The Wall follow four American teens from the tough streets of Washington DC who are given the rare chance to study abroad.”
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.
Beyond The Wall is privileged to be an official selection of Sheffield Doc/Fest Videotheque.
Great news – particularly because the programmers selected it on the basis of a rough cut.
The film will be available for film and television industry delegates to Sheffield Doc/Fest to view online via the secure Videotheque screening site.
Our first preview screening was held last night at the Lumiere Parkview Cinema in Beijing where a wonderful mix of journalists, filmmakers and friends gave the film an enthusiastic reception.
The international background of the filmmakers was reflected in the mixed nationalities of the guests who included the UK Ambassador, Sebastian Wood, and Mona Locke, wife of the US Ambassador.
