‘A Hidden Existence’ Film Screening (Video)

The premiere film screening and art exhibit of Gandhi Brigade’s Social Justice summer project will take place on August 9 at 7 p.m. in the Silver Spring Civic Building, 1 Veterans Plaza. Gandhi Brigade partnered with Pyramid Atlantic to employ eight teen interns to learn about documentary filmmaking and printmaking. The youth used their art and media skills to produce a film and a visual art campaign to explore a current issue that affects the community. The interns chose to focus on teen homelessness. They used crowd-funding to raise money for their summer salaries through Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

Gandhi Brigade is a non profit organization that works with youth to develop media skills to address social justice issues. Started in 2005, it provides local teens with space, equipment, and mentorship. The youth are oganized into three teams (community organizers, community producers, and community educators) to use skills such as graphic design, photography, video, and public speaking to express their ideas to the community.

Pyramid Atlantic Art Center’s mission is to build communities that give life to printmaking, papermaking, and the book arts.
