The Stereotype Project

This spring, 70 middle school students from Bronx Preparatory Charter School participated in the Tribeca Teaches program. Through 10 weeks of story development, research and shooting footage in each classroom created a short film exploring a persistent stereotype in their neighborhood, the South Bronx. These films address who these students are, where they are from, how people perceive them, and most importantly, how they perceive themselves. Together, these four short films comprise The Stereotype Project, a celebration of the Bronx, its future and the young people who live here.
