Closed for Good

by Rachel Dickson ($5,000)
"Closed for Good" is a thirty-minute documentary short that will profile three subjects affected by Chicago Public School closings. Through these characters' eyes and voices, we meet families, teachers, relatives, and communities - and learn what it's like to not know where you will go to school or work next year. The film aims to show an inner view into the lives of people affected by public education policy, and thus effect change and political action.
