I hope you will share this information with your aspiring young filmmakers when the new school year starts in August. Maybe you can incorporate it as an assessment in your curriculum for the 1st Nine Weeks, or pursue it as a homeschool project. What better way to start the year with a project on not standing by while others are threatened or mistreated with rudeness, bullying, violence, racism or intolerance.
