Scribe Video Center DHPY Screening

Still from Take us Seriously: The September 20th Climate Strike by Noah Eggerts & Jennifer Wilson

Celebrate new works from Scribe Video Center’s 2019 Documentary History Project for Youth (DHPY), an annual after-school, weekend and summertime digital media production workshop for middle and high school students.

Each year, youth participants create short documentary films as a way to explore some aspect of the social, political and cultural history of Philadelphia. This year the teens examined acts of “Youth Activism” with an eye on the historic relationship between young people and activism in Philadelphia. Tackling gender discrimination, gentrification, youth climate strikes, and more—our young filmmakers applied their talents to explore and document acts of “Youth Activism” cultures they came to know while in DHPY.

The following films will be presented:
