GO PUBLIC: A Day in the Life of an American School District is a 90-minute video document of a single day in an urban public school district, from sun up to long after sundown. On May 8, 2012, 50 directors and their small camera crews followed 50 individuals who attend, support and work in the Pasadena Unified School District, a racially and economically diverse district with 28 public school campuses. Administrators, teachers, students, support staff and volunteers lead us on journeys that reveal their unique contributions in making a public school district function. No voice-over narratives or expert commentaries, just an authentic window into the world of public education. GO PUBLIC is an important film because there is a national crisis of confidence surrounding public education. This film gives audiences a chance to see and hear the people actually living the public school experience.
