A Lot Like You

A Film by Eliaichi Kimaro

8th Grade Reviews ALLY

January 27, 2015

Occasionally, we get requests from middle school teachers asking whether A LOT LIKE YOU is appropriate for their students.  My answer is always, “it depends.”  Teachers know their students best.  And our trailer is an accurate representation of the scope and tone of our film.

I will say that it is amazing to see the impact this film can have when kids are ready for it.  A while ago, I was invited to screen the film and discuss my film journey with Lake Washington Girls Middle School‘s 8th grade memoir writing class.  They not only filled out postcards for the ALLY Project, but I subsequently received a pack of the most brilliant, insightful letters. I got their permission to post their letters on my blog.  And so, over the coming months, we will be posting a new letter every Wednesday.

Their reflections will blow you away…
