    Feb 14th Showing, The Documentary, IF YOU BUILD IT

    From Patrick Creadon, director of WORDPLAY and I.O.U.S.A., comes a captivating look at a radically innovative approach to education. IF YOU BUILD IT follows designer-activists Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller to rural Bertie county, the poorest in North Carolina, where they work with local high school students to transform both their community and their lives. Living on credit and grant money and fighting a change-resistant school board, Pilloton and Miller lead their students through a year-long, full-scale design and build project that does much more than just teach basic construction skills: it shows ten teenagers the power of design-thinking to help re-invent not just their town but their own sense of what’s possible.

    Showing on February 14, 2014 at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema in Atlanta called IF YOU BUILD IT, about influential designer-activist Emily Pilloton.
