NYC PREMIERE At the International High School at Lafayette, a Brooklyn public high school dedicated to newly arrived immigrants from all over the world, five teenagers strive to master English, adapt to families they haven’t seen in years, and create a future of their own while coming of age in a new land. Their journey is full of challenges, humor and inspiration. Through their lives, we “learn America.”

Take a look at IF YOU BUILD IT and other films focused on education.

Note: Free pre-screening community gathering and discussion at the Centre for Social Innovation, Sun, 11/17, 11:30am. With a Guatemalan and Pakistani food tasting by the mothers of two of the film’s subjects! Click here for more info.
