NJ Shorts 2: Power of Youth

This event is SOLD-OUT.  There may be a limited number of tickets released to the rush-line the day of the screening, 15 minutes before showtime.

Three shorts look at young people facing challenges:

Drums of Thunder (11 min, Glenn Schuster & & Jason Schuler) documents a group of New Jersey elementary school students who perform complex percussion pieces.

First Match (15 min, Olivia Newman), a work of fiction, portrays a 14-year-old girl competing on a boys wrestling team.

Inocente (40 min, Sean Fine & Andrea Nix Fine) is a documentary about a homeless 15-year-old girl with artistic ambitions, produced by the Oscar®-nominated, Montclair-based company Shine Global.
