Breaking The Silence is a student created documentary, following the lives of four teens of all different ages and their struggles throughout high school. The film will make it clear that discrimination is still prevenlent in our schools, but that a difference can be made.
The production of Breaking The Silence brought to light how rarely organizations reach out to students for help in the fight for equality. We hope to change that. We will travel the country and speak at schools about our experiences and how much students our age can do to change the hostile climate in and out of schools.
We are a team of youth who speak out. We attend and organize rallys, speak at government meetings and advocate within our schools. This movement is about widening our reach, our influence and our numbers.
Breaking the Silence was the beginning and has continued to grow alongside the ambition of our movement. This documentary was orginally intended to map out the lives of several Colorado teens but now follows the growth and progression of a movement of youth based activism. We encourage youth to fight for their own rights and acceptance. Through protests, clubs and speeches, youth have more power than they often realize. We plan to reach out, using the unique insight provided by our age to educate students on the significant impact they can have.
