Over the past month, 826 Boston has been working closely with talented filmmaker (and long-time friend) Matt Watson to create a powerful short film celebrating some of the incredible students of 826 Boston.
The film focuses on 826 Boston’s Youth Literary Advisory Board (YLAB), which represents students from all six of 826 Boston Writers’ Rooms. YLAB meetings are a space of limitless expression for students like Asiyah, who is featured in the film. You’ll get to hear her story of hope, creativity, and resilience as she navigates the unexpected challenges of today and explore how 826 Boston has been working and writing with students during the COVID-19 crisis.
We want to thank all of the YLAB students, especially Team Leader Asiyah, for sharing their stories during this unprecedented time. We hope you enjoy the film!
