RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Paper Tigers

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.
