TEACH, TEACHERS ARE TALKING, IS THE NATION LISTENING DOCUMENTARY RECEIVES INDIE SPEC BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY AWARD AT THE BOSTON INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

TEACH Best Cinematography Award

BOSTON, April 25, 2012.     TEACH, Teachers Are Talking, Is the Nation Listening has received the Indie Spec Best Cinematography Award from the Boston International Film Festival. The winning films were announced at the closing ceremony of the 2012 festival at the AMC Loews Theater, Boston Common, on Sunday, April 22, 2012. TEACH was screened at the festival on Monday, April 16 before a very large and enthusiastic audience. The screening was followed by a spirited Q and A discussion. The filmmakers of TEACH are teachers in the Boston Public Schools and residents of Quincy, MA..

Many additional screenings are being planned for the Boston area and in cities all across the country including such cities as Detroit, Denver, Cities in Florida, Eugene, Oregon, multiple screenings around Seattle, multiple screenings in New Jersey, New York, multiple screenings in California, multiple colleges and universities, and others.

TEACH, Teachers are Talking, Is the Nation Listening? is a film that features conversations about the art of teaching and learning by teachers themselves. TEACH brings an important perspective to the national education debate that is currently being dominated by a corporate led agenda to privatize education and blame teachers for everything that is wrong with education in this country. This movie takes on many questions about No Child Left Behind, high stakes testing, unequal distribution of education resources, and schools dominated by data driven curriculum instead of providing an education that is dynamic, creative, exciting, and joyful. As the filmmakers state in the movie, "Every day in the media we hear from the businesses, thinktankers, politicians, and administrators, this movie is about those who don't usually get heard."

TEACH examines the behind the scenes forces that are attacking teachers and their unions, promoting charter schools as the solution, and standardized testing as the primary determinant of student and teacher value. The film interviewed over 40 teachers from many school districts including Boston, Brooklyn, NY, Madison, WI, Key West, FL, North Conway, NH, Cambridge, MA, Newton, MA, Lincoln-Sudbury,MA, and others. Additional parts of the movie include legislative hearings, speeches, and debates between union and school officials, various public hearings about school closings, and various teacher rallies.
