The Bad Kids

By Keith Fulton & Lou Pepe

Presented by Indie Lens Pop-Up

Located in an impoverished Mojave Desert community, Black Rock Continuation High School is an alternative for at-risk students with little hope of graduating from a traditional high school. It's their last chance. This coming of age story shows extraordinary educators and talented students combatting the crippling effects of poverty.

This is an Indie Lens Pop-Up film screening.
