|Chester Upland Student Filmmakers from the Blueprint Program at Swarthmore College|
A film screening of Chester Upland School District students’ films was held at the Swarthmore College Lang Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, April 26, 2016. The Blueprint program has partnered with the district for about 10 years helping students to learn filming and editing of films. This semester 40 Chester Upland students from Chester High School, STEM, and Cardinal O’Hara teamed up with instructor Roseann Liu and Swarthmore students to produce a series of short films changing common perceptions of Chester’s community, its school, and its youth. The students trained for 2 days per week and some Saturdays since January.
