Community Cinema Screening - The Graduates/Los Graduados
CET and the Cincinnati Film Festival are partnering for a Community Cinema screening of The Graduates/Los Graduados. The event, which is sponsored by ITVS and American Graduate, will be held at 7pm Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Booker T. Washington Community Center in Hamilton, Ohio. The event is free and open to the public.
The Graduates/Los Graduados is a two hour film focusing on Latinos in high school – one hour for boys and one hour for girls. The issues range from bullying to teen pregnancy. The screening will include the boys section of the film and will be followed by a discussion of the issues and the film.
For those who can’t attend the screening, The Graduates/Los Graduados, will air on CET in two parts. The first hour will be broadcast on Independent Lens at 10pm Monday, Oct. 28, and the second hour will be the following Monday, Nov. 4, also at 10pm.
