The Maryland Morning Screen Test Film Series Presents
Wide Angle Youth Media

Wednesday, May 25, 7 pm
The Windup Space
12 W. North Avenue, Baltimore

Admission is Free and Drinks are Cheap

Tonight, Baltimore’s youngest filmmakers will take the test—the Maryland Morning Screen Test, that is.  Tom Hall, arts and culture editor of WYPR’s “Maryland Morning with Sheilah Kast,” will interview the young filmmakers of Wide Angle Youth Media.  Through workshops, the middle and high schoolers learn all parts of film production, from story-boarding to shooting to editing.

As a result, the students create documentary and narrative films that tell the stories of Baltimore’s youth.  Their movies deal with topics including Baltimore’s underground youth rap scene, bullying in schools, and gang activity in Baltimore.

Excerpts of several of those films will be shown at the Screen Test, which takes place at the Windup Space on Baltimore’s North Avenue.  The evening will also include interviews with the filmmakers.  The event will be recorded to air on “Maryland Morning” on Friday, May 27, at 9:40 am.  As always, the Screen Test is free and open to the public.

You can check out interviews from earlier Screen Tests with filmmakers including Matt Porterfield, the Robinson Brothers, Catherine Pancake, and Alvin Gray.
