Harlem Children's Zone
This is an excerpt from a short film that I directed on the Harlem Children's Zone. Spending time with Geoffrey Canada and the students at HCZ was one of the more inspiring projects I've worked on. If you're not familiar with HCZ, the school takes an innovative approach to education that includes longer school hours, free school lunches, medical and dental care on site and community programs. HCZ is helping children do more than beat the odds, they're working to change the odds.
