Tomorrow - (May 5) - Burton Theatre

Premier of Our School - a film by Oren Goldenberg (trailer here) - hosted by the Burton Theatre, Wednesday at 8:30 pm (tickets $5-$10 sliding scale, 130 seats available...)

Goldenberg grew up a couple miles north of Detroit (a stones throw from the zoo) and graduated from U-M with an honors degree in film and video. He has been working on this production for more than 3 years, starting out with a collaboration with Zachary Takenaga that documented the fundraising efforts to withstand the risk of one high school's closure in 2005 - then leading to the pair's return to document the perspective of students within eight sepaarate high schools slated for closure (back in 2007).

More screenings: Friday (5/7 8pm) - Saturday (5pm & 8pm) - Sunday (2pm)
