Show THIS Movie, Dammit

It's almost a year since Waiting for Superman was unleashed on the public and the Grassroots Education Movement response film which was released May 19 still has a lot of catching up to do. Consider showing the film in your school community this year. If you are in NYC contact us if you are interested in setting up a panel. See the video below of the backyard showing in Boston and the upcoming showing on Aug. 29.

As we prepare for the upcoming school year, consider organizing a screeing in your area.  Screenings were held across the country this summer including this one http://tagboston.org/2011/08/16/screening-of-the-inconvenient-truth-behind-waiting-for-superman/ in Boston.  Share your experiences with us and share the film with others!

Order your copy of ITBWS on the DVD form found on this site.  For additional assistance or questions email: gemnyc@gmail.com.  Folks are free to share the film during public screenings and you can burn dvd copies; we only ask you do not upload the film to the internet and do not use the film for profit.



On July 19th, 2011 almost 100 teachers, parents, students and stakeholders attended a community viewing of “The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman” – a response to the film “Waiting for Superman.” We held the screening backyard-theater-BBQ style on Wakullah Street in Roxbury, MA and everybody pitched in to bring food, blankets, a projector, speakers, and good vibes. Bree Picower from NYCoRE made the trip up from New York in order to give a talk before the movie and moderate a discussion afterwards.

If you would like to catch another screening don’t miss out on our next one. This time we will be showing the film on August 29th in the Dudley Branch of the Boston Public Library on 65 Warren Street in Roxbury, MA from 5:30 to 7:45. You can click here for the flier and help us promote this screening in your neighborhood or school.

  1. What is the rationale behind not putting the film on the internet?

  3. We are not posting on the internet to encourage people to set up group viewings rather than view individually. Maybe in next 6 months.
