Mott Haven
Directed by Kyle Morrison
Run Time: 24m, USA
JC Hall is a social worker in the South Bronx who has been given the opportunity to create a music studio in the old storage room of a “second chance” high school. When one of the students who helped him build the studio is murdered in front of the school, JC and his after school program decide to hold a show in his honor. The film follows the group for over a year as they prepare for the show, all while processing their grief, overcoming individual obstacles and working towards graduating high school in a district where 49% of kids live below the poverty line.
