Before we get to today’s highlight list – one to put on your calendar for tomorrow: A festival of short films created by 10th graders at Chief Sealth International High School. The photos shared with us show some of the students collaborating as they edit their films in the project’s final week.
Their work will be shown during the school day tomorrow and then at three evening showings to which you’re invited: 5 pm, 6:30 pm, and 8 pm at the CSIHS Auditorium (2600 SW Thistle). Some of the filmmakers will participate in panel discussions – it’s all detailed on the festival’s website. That’s also where you can see what the films are about – as described in the announcement we received, “local issues that are most important to students of this generation.” From the evening screenings’ schedules, just a few examples:
-“Humanizing the Homeless”
-“Immigration: Our Story”
-“Hip Hop/Rap Shows the Message of the Time”
-“Fishing for Clues”
-“Perceptions of Body Image”
There’s even a short about “Juice the God,” the local rapper murdered downtown for whom a memorial is still in place barely a block northeast of the campus. See the world through the eyes of the up-and-coming generation, tomorrow night at Chief Sealth.
