The powerful process of creative intervention comes to light in this new documentary from Spanish director Miquel Galofré. At Trinidad and Tobago’s Success Laventille Secondary School, a group of seven “at risk” teenagers from the disenfranchised and volatile community are recruited for a series of dynamic workshops using mural art, music, poetry, and dance to open their eyes to how art uplifts their community, family, and ultimately themselves. These young men and women are the narrators of this story, using Go-Pro cameras to expand their journeys of courage through moments of doubt and vulnerability, all culminating into a memorable conclusion sure to leave you in tears.
