Our largest project at the Basement this summer has been shooting and editing a documentary. All of our daily activities and projects have been interspersed with filming, with teens exploring what its like on both sides of the camera. Little pink Flip Cameras float around the teen center capturing spontaneous moments of laughter, singing, shouting, and conversing. In addition, we interviewed teens and community members to find out their thoughts on Montpelier, school, culture, and life itself. Our aim is to start a conversation between youth and the rest of the community so the showing on Monday will be followed by a Q&A session with youth and staff from the Basement Teen Center.

Donations encouraged.
