Filmed over four years, The New Public chronicles the ambitious efforts of a group of young educators, their students, and the community as they create a small, new public high school in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Their bold vision is put to the test as they struggle to adapt to the difficult reality of the community they serve. From Emmy Award®-winning filmmaker and HIFF alum (PULL OUT) Jyllian Gunther comes a verité-style documentary that considers what it means to bridge, “the urban achievement gap”: who is responsible, who is capable, and whether it’s even possible.
