ONCE IN A LULLABY: THE PS22 CHORUS STORY

The PS22 chorus from Staten Island became world famous after their YouTube videos went viral. This feel-good documentary follows them to their big performance as the closing act at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, where creative differences, lost voices, and homesickness threaten their performance. Can these 5th graders entertain the entertainment elite?

After the Movie: Stay for a conversation with director Jonathan Kalafer, PS22 chorus teacher Gregg Breinberg, Executive Director of the Office of the Arts and Special Projects at the New York City Department of Education Paul King, and more on how new media arts in the classroom can breathe new life into students' curricula, capture their attention, and spark eagerness to learn. Moderated by Tribeca Film Institute Education Program Developer Caitlin Meissner.

At the beginning of the program, President of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights Kerry Kennedy will introduce the winner of the Speak Truth to Power student video competition, sponsored by the RFK Foundation and New York United Teachers. The winning short, Wangari Maathai and the Green Belt Movement, will show prior to the screening and showcase student work within the Festival.
