DESCRIPTION:
(from Starz's press release, June 2018) Starz announced today that the new unscripted 10-part series "America To Me" will premiere on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 9 PM ET/PT. This insightful documentary series created by Emmy Award(R)-winning and Oscar(R)-nominated filmmaker Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters, Life Itself, Abacus: Small Enough to Jail), and produced by Participant Media and Kartemquin Films. The official trailer provides a first look into an academic year at Chicagoland's elite Oak Park and River Forest High School. "America To Me" follows students, teachers and administrators in suburban Chicago's Oak Park and River Forest High School, one of the country's highest performing and diverse public schools, over the course of a year, as they grapple with decades-long racial and educational inequities - in addition to the challenges that today's teenagers face. Digging deep into the experiences of a racially diverse student population, "America to Me" sparks candid conversations about what has succeeded and what has failed in the quest to achieve racial equity and overcome obstacles in our education system. In this part observational character story and part high-school confessional, James captures critical moments within this vibrant high-school ecosystem.
