"Nobody wants to hear my story. What do I have to say?"
We believe your story matters! Our program has helped more than 100,000 students from marginalized communities share what matters with us, producing 27 short films seen by an audience of MILLIONS each year on Showtime, Mundos, MTV, HBO, BET at film festivals and in classrooms across the country.
By bringing our REAL DEAL curriculum and films into middle school and high school classrooms, we engage students to think critically and creatively about the issues they face. Our films' characters have dealt with heartbreak, prejudice, relationships, sexual violence/abuse, bullying, as well as having college dreams realized and finding love for the first time. Since 1999, Scenarios has asked teens to share their realities, and they have responded with a raw and revealing constellation of voices of what it means to be a teenager today.
We've worked with directors such as Joel Schumacher (The Phantom of the Opera, Batman Forever), Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), Gina Prince-Blythewood (Love and Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees), as well as actors/actresses including Rosario Dawson (Rent, Sin City), Selenis Leyva (Orange is the New Black), and Reg E. Cathey (The Wire, Se7en).
Watch, listen and share!
