Fri., July 15: High school kids can make compelling films, as evidenced by the BK 4 Reel Film Festival. This is part two of the fest’s coverage of the Cine Banneker Film Festival 2011, held at the famous Steiner Studios. Host Monica Furman interviews some of the winning filmmakers, while co-host Josh Joya and guest host Wilbensen Eugene introduce the films.
Manhood 5K: This short from Benjamin Banneker Academy won Best Documentary. From his teachers and fellow students, a young man gathers answers to the question, “What does it take to be a man?”
Doll Face: Here’s a frightening and fateful lesson in the risks you run when you dive into social media: the tale of a young woman who friends the wrong kind of guy on Facebook. Another award-winning film from Banneker.
Do’s & Don’ts of a First Date: From Midwood High School: two girls role play how to make it through the minefield of a first date, from deciding what to wear to mastering the minuet of the goodnight kiss.
San Moon Reversal: A hand-drawn black and white animated look at teens and their all-important struggle for acceptance. Also from Midwood High.
