The Ghetto Film School
Initially, I thought it was a joke. But once I realized that it wasn't, I was truly mesmerized.
The Ghetto Film School is a creative non-profit in New York that aims to utilize "the art of cinematic storytelling" within urban neighborhoods like the Bronx to equip youth and students to become the new wave of leaders in film production. As America's first film high school, it has received the support of many corporations and organizations in leading its cause, as laid out here.

I am excited to see how this revolutionary program progresses.
