10 SECONDS Virtual Film Screening and Talkback
Total running time: 90 minutes
(for audiences ages 13 and up)
In a world where deeply-rooted biases and misperceptions easily take hold, life can often feel unnerving - things can change for better or worse in a blink of an eye. Ray and Jimi are Washington, DC high school students who are navigating their young adult worlds and what it means to be young black men in the city. Ray tells the story of a day, and the 10 seconds inside that day, that they will never forget. We see not only their perspectives, but also those of the police they encounter. Through audience engagement and interactive moments, the play provides opportunities for reflection and discussion. The 45-minute film was written by Miriam Gonzales, directed by LeeAnét Noble, and produced by Maryland's Imagination Stage. There will be a 30-minute talkback following the film with guests from the DCT Youth Ambassador program, the Dallas Police Department youth organization partners and Cry Havoc Theater Company.
