About The Films
In Spring 2017, high school students explored Joelle's story of depression and of how the signs are more apparent than you think. Featuring interviews with Dr. Karen Swartz, a Hopkins-based expert on teenage depression, and a memorable interview with Faison's mother, VOID addresses the circumstances of teenage depression with a rare power.
Violence in Baltimore: A Community in Chaos
In Spring 2017, high school students investigated the cycle of violence in Baltimore, searching for real-world strategies to prevent violence from escalating among their peers and their communities. Featuring interviews with students and experts, including Dr. Philip Leaf of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence, Dr. Jada McCray of the Simon Life and Wellness Center, Dr. Carol Vidal of the Johns Hopkins Department of Childhood & Behavioral Health, and Dante Barksdale and James Timpson of Safe Streets, this powerful documentary provides insight into the ways young people are challenging dominant narratives and seeking peaceful, de-escalating methods of conflict resolution.
