FINDING THE GOLD WITHIN, co-presented by The Berkeley FILM Foundation and featuring a post-film Q&A with director Karina Epperlein (Doc Night)
Finding the Gold Within follows six black college students from Akron, Ohio, for three and a half years. They have been mentored for seven years by the unique youth program Alchemy, Inc. and are well equipped with self-confidence and critical-thinking skills, ready to become the heroes within their own stories. The protagonists grow before our eyes, each of them hell-bent on disproving society's stereotypes and low expectations. What will their paths and trials look like? How will they follow their dreams?
This showing of "Finding the Gold Within" features a post-film Q&A with director Karina Epperlein.
This film is a co-presentation of The New Parkway and The Berkeley FILM Foundation.
