Culture Shock: a traveling film series 

began as Culture Shock: a film series on September 09, 2011 with the screening of one of my favorite pieces of performance art ever:  Passing Strange by an artist named Stew which I saw for the first time when it aired on PBS in 2010.

I chose this piece to launch our series not just because the music and performance are both outstanding, but also becase the message of the youths search for what is real. 

 

Since the underlying goal of what I was trying to accomplish with our project Helping Kids Together was about promoting the availability of life's opportunities to real people,

I thought it was a great fit then and still today. 

As for the rest of the titles in our collection of screened films, all are handpicked. Some are favorites and some we have not seen till we watch at the screenings.  All of the works have to have some element of Culture Shock  in or about them. 

 

We hope you see it too.
