American Promise


(American Promise) Director: Michele Stephenson, Joe Brewster, USA, 2013, English version / Czech subtitles, 80 min

It's the first day of school for Idris and his best friend, Seun. This isn't a public school but one of America's most prestigious private schools – Dalton in Manhattan. Once a whites-only school, today it welcomes smart and ambitious children of all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. Over the course of almost 13 years, we follow the challenges, successes, disappointments and pain faced by two African-American kids in the American educational system as filmed by their parents. The film is an important tool in the fight for equal education in the USA but also shows the everyday concerns of families who want to provide their children with the best education.
