The documentary Shakespeare High, directed by Alex Rotaru at Tribeca Film Festival 2011- Spotlight, World Premiere
At home, many of them face poverty, gangs, drugs, and a lack of role models, but in their high school drama programs, a diverse group of Southern California teens finds a chance to create a better life. Following several students as they prepare for and compete in the 90th Drama Teachers Association of Southern California Shakespeare Festival, and featuring interviews with Val Kilmer, Mare Winningham, Richard Dreyfuss and executive producer Kevin Spacey, this galvanizing documentary reminds us of the positive impact of arts education on impressionable youth.
