Premiere of Mi Historia, My Culture.
A film by a group
of ASPIRA South Charter School students, based on their own lives.
We held our World
Premiere on Thursday, May 27 for a crowd of about 450 people at
FIU's Wertheim Performing Arts Center, and two encore presentation
on Friday for students from ASPIRA South and our sister school,
ASPIRA North. Thursday night's guests reported being captivated by
the story, moved to tears, impressed by the acting talents of our
students and parents, and amazed by the professional quality of
the production. On Friday, we knew the kids here would love it
(many of them had parts as extras), but were thrilled by the
enthusiastic response from their peers in the North.
We will be looking
for other venues for the film during the summer, and funding for
creating copies. We welcome any ideas.
Thank you for your
continued interest in our project and our students.
