Class of '27
"On native lands of the Upper Midwest, in the hollows of Appalachia and in West Coast migrant camps, parents contemplate a compromised future for their children, facing depressed local economies and soaring dropout rates. But a growing body of research on quality child development offers hope for breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Three diverse filmmaking teams set out across rural America, exploring the lives of our youngest citizens and telling the stories of families and communities coming together-- against the odds-- to guide their children into successful graduates of the Class of '27."--Container. "In Class of '27, three diverse filmmaking teams set out across rural America to explore the lives of our youngest citizens and tell the stories of families and communities coming together-- against the odds-- to guide their children into successful graduates of the Class of '27."--Publisher's website http://lostnationpictures.com/projects/class-of-27/, viewed 05/08/2017. "The three stories focus on students, educators, parents and guardians in three locations: Owsley County, KY, the poorest county in the US; along the West Coast with children of farm workers; and in White Earth Nation, the largest and poorest Native American reservation in Minnesota"--Internet movie database.

Deej (53 min.)
"Abandoned by his birth parents and unable to speak for himself, DJ Savarese ("Deej") found not only a loving family but also a life in words, which he types on a text-to-voice synthesizer. As he dreams of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, society's obstacles to inclusion and often paralyzing beauty of his own senses. In this first-of-its kind collaboration between a veteran filmmaker and a nonspeaking autistic, Robert Rooy and DJ share editorial control as they navigate the challenges of representing autism. Deej is a story told from the inside."--Container.
