Through the Lens: Paper Tigers

Nov 2, 2015

Monday, we continue our series on documentary film with Paper Tigers. For a full year, director James Redford and his crew followed six troubled students at a Washington state alternative high school that adopted a radical new guidance program. Rather than focus on judgment and discipline, the school aims to help kids through deeper understanding and more effective treatment. The results: a dramatic reduction in fights and a five-fold graduation rate increase. Redford joins us to talk about it.

Join us for a free screening of James Redford’s film Paper Tigers on Wednesday, November 4 at 7:00 p.m., at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center [map]. Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film Q&A with Redford. It’s all part of our Through the Lens series in partnership with Utah Film Center. If you're a member of KUER or the Film Center, bring your membership card to the screening for early access. RSVP to the event via Facebook | DETAILS

James Redford is a writer, producer, and director of film and television. Paper Tigers is his ninth film.
