What the Students Had to Say
"I grew to love directing and appreciate the opportunity of making someone else's life my project and the star treatment we received on the night of the premiere was awesome!"
“It was ironic that we are all physically and socially diverse, but we all have the same teenage issues…”
“Documenting Diversity was one of the best experiences because I got to know a new culture and I learned a great way to share that experience in film.”
"My partner Diane and I embraced our differences and became amazing friends."
Zoya Awan, Jericho HS
"Documenting Diversity was an experience that I will never forget. This program not only helped me grow as a filmmaker, but as a human being too. Being a part of Documenting Diversity not only allowed me to learn about all the different aspects of being a filmmaker, but I also learned about the cultures and lives of people whose experiences were so different from my own. I know this program will benefit me in the years to come."
