The Apollos

6mins | 2006 | DocumentaryTVPG
THE APOLLOS is about the struggle of a high school senior class to pass a bill making Martin Luther King's birthday a nationally recognized holiday. The idea behind the project came from producer BAVC wanting to increase youth involvement in social issues, so they decided to use a powerful example. By combining the different interviews into one powerful story, the filmmakers created a non-traditional hybrid interview style to show the union of new and old ideas working towards the same goal. Hopefully today's youth will learn from The Apollos and flex that metaphoric bicep in today's adult run society. Youth around the world need to know they too are world citizens and have a voice. Use it!
