ANATOMY OF A SNOW DAY

2014 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Zachary Maxwell

WORLD PREMIERE When school remains open during a winter storm, twelve-year-old documentary filmmaker Zachary Maxwell seeks out answers from the adults calling the shots. Through tireless efforts which included countless letters, emails, phone calls and other creative forms of outreach, Zachary goes inside the New York City government to understand how weather-related emergencies influence school closings. Anatomy of a Snow Day offers a lighthearted and inspiring tale for young people about intellectual curiosity, questioning authority, and the value of civic awareness.
