I Learn America Trailer (2013)

Trailer for I Learn America.

Focusing on five recent immigrants in their senior year at New York City's International High School at Lafayette, Jean-Michel Dissard and Gitte Peng's documentary juxtaposes the students' adolescent growing pains with the challenges of navigating a new culture and language. The filmmakers' intimate access lets us get to know — and cheer for — these newcomers as they forge friendships and face difficult adjustments both at home and in the school community.
