Ep.19: Transforming Education Through Film with Filmmaker Erahm Christopher
Manage episode 342759723 series 2954254
Award-winning filmmaker Erahm Christopher wants to hear from students and argues that the more carefully we listen to them and to one another, the better our chances of transforming education into a more compassionate, productive and effective institution.
Christopher has produced and directed more than 20 films, taking on subjects such as bullying, substance abuse, school violence, disabilities and mental health as part of his mission to bridge social divides through storytelling. Those films have reached more than 8 million people and have influenced legislation, inspired youth development strategies and literally saved lives.
His debut scripted feature, LISTEN, depicts students teetering on the precipice between self-destruction and redemption, exploring the many ways that educators can influence the final outcome.
You can learn about Christopher's films including LISTEN, PHILADELPHIA PROJECT and the TEEN TRUTH FILM SERIES at ec-films.com.
His first children's book, NEW FRIENDS, the first in an original series to help children and adults spark courage conversations about our beautiful peculiarities and mental health. Available here on Amazon.com.
