Untitled Youth Builds Project

Description

This film closely follows two young involved in YouthBuilds programs in New York City and San Francisco documenting the personal and political dramas that unfold over a year in a high stakes community rebuilding project. Simultaneously the filmmakers will also track the lives of two individuals from these cities who are not selected to participate in a YouthBuilds program and paths their lives take without YouthBuilds schooling and support. The film is as much about powerful stories of rebuilding neglected neighborhoods as it is about the personal struggles to reclaim and reinvent these promising young lives.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
