Mon, 04/03/2017 - 7:00pm
DCTV, 87 Lafayette St, NYC

Doors 6:30pm | No admittance after 7:30pm

co-presented with IDA

Please join us for the second installment of DocuClub NY 2017 with a work-in-progress screening of Juliane Dressner’s Personal Statement.

Karoline, Christine and Enoch dream of becoming the first generation in their families to graduate college, but they are doing even more. They are working as college counselors in their under-resourced schools because many of their peers don't have the support they need to apply to college. Personal Statement is an observational, feature-length documentary that begins in the fall of senior year and follows these three into college. The film weaves their narratives, following their personal struggles, their college process and their work as college counselors. Karoline, Christine and Enoch are fighting to defy the odds not only for themselves, but for every single one of their classmates.

The Personal Statement creative team includes: Juliane Dressner (Director/Producer/Cinematographer), Edwin Martinez (Cinematographer/Editor), Kent Bassett (Editor), Martha Shane (Editor), Rikki Gunton (Additional Editor), T. Griffen (Composer), and Beth Levison (Consulting Producer).

Following the screening we will be joined by Juliane Dressner, Edwin Martinez, Beth Levison and Rikki Gunton for a discussion moderated by Theresa Navarrao.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Space is limited. Admission not guaranteed, all RSVP's are first-come, first-served.
