Purple Dreams

New York Premiere – United States – 72 min
Directed by Joanne Hock.

This inspirational documentary follows several students from the Northwest School of the Arts, in Charlotte, N.C., after it is chosen to be the first high school permitted to perform the musical The Color Purple. From auditions through opening night and beyond, the filmmakers follow these students as they pursue their dreams while struggling with homelessness, low-income neighborhoods, gang-related violence and single-parent households. A behind-the-scenes look at an amazing group of teachers and students who work relentlessly to put on a triumphant musical production that propels them into a world of opportunity they never expected.

Produced by Robin Grey, Sara Patel. Edited by John Disher. Director of Photography: John Disher. From GreyHawk Films.
