Conscientious Projector: Go Public: A Day in the Life of an American School District

September 23, 2017

Join us on Thursday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Armory Center for the Arts for a screening of Go Public: A Day in the Life of an American School District.  As public education persists as a significant and debated issue both locally and nationally, Conscientious Projector holds a reprise screening of Go Public by local filmmakers and public school advocates Dawn and James O’Keeffe.

A few years ago, the O’Keeffes recruited 50 small film crews who followed Pasadena public school students, teachers, volunteers and administrators as they went about a typical day on the school district’s many campuses. The result is a cinema verité-style film that not only contradicts the conventional meme that public education is irrevocably broken, but also shows the vitality, dedication and teamwork that exists among stakeholders amidst the challenges of providing a learning experience for students in an economically and racially diverse urban area like Pasadena.

The Armory Center for the Arts is located at 145 N. Raymond Ave. in Pasadena.  The filmmakers join us for a community discussion following the film. Admission is free the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
