Changing Perceptions Film Screening
Start Date: 4/26/2016Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 4/26/2016End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
What comes to mind when you think of Chester? Urban blight? A school district on life support?

These perceptions, at best, only tell a partial story of what Chester is about. This semester, Chester students teamed up with Swarthmore students to produce a series of short films challenging common perceptions of its community, its schools, and its youth. The title of our film screening—Changing Perceptions—has dual meanings. Filmmakers are unapologetically trying to challenge popular perceptions of Chester by telling their own stories, from their own perspectives. But these films also explore Chester students’ own changing perceptions of themselves, their peers, their community, and their life trajectories.

We invite you to engage in these issues with us on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 from 4:30PM to 6PM in the LPAC Cinema. Reception to follow.
