North Park's Boulevard Nights to showcase films from MACSD's Teen Producers Project

No matter how great and glorious an event it may be, the Media Arts Center San Diego means so much more to our town than just an annual film festival. When it comes time to give back to the community, this organization stands tall.

The Teen Producers Project has been a staple of MACSD since 2001. Every summer, local youth enrolled in the program create short, socially-relevant documentaries. This year's TPP addressees such topics as land use issues in City Heights and environmental issues in Imperial Beach. Perhaps the most important of this year's entrees chronicles the death of Anastasio Hernández Rojas. According to The Reader's Dave Rice, Rojas was "an undocumented San Diego resident who was beaten and tasered by Border Patrol officers and later died from those injuries."

Participants in TPP 2012 will have a chance to showcase their work during the upcoming Boulevard Nights block party in North Park. The screening takes place on Friday, September 14 at 7:30pm on the south side of El Cajon Boulevard between 30th St. and Kansas St.

"It's important that youth be educated as to what's going on in their neighborhoods," says Julia Richardson, MACSD's Education & Outreach Coordinator. "Using film and video as a resource to make these issues accessible to the community is a major part of our mission."

MACSD will again host the 2nd quarterly Boulevard Nights in conjunction with their neighbors the Coffee & Tea Collective, The Homebrewer, and the Boulevard Business Improvement Association.
