Eugene Martin, a filmmaker and professor in BTMM, getting some media love for tomorrow night’s debut of his latest documentary, Bloodlines, in which he had two 8th-graders record video diaries about their experiences in Philadelphia schools.
Check its description from the Philadelphia Film Festival:
Two inner-city Philly kids — Ebony from North Philadelphia and Dennis from Port Richmond — were given video cameras to chronicle a year in their young lives, including their experiences at home, at school and with their friends. Filmmaker Eugene Martin edits their stories into a fascinating look into their worlds.
It’s part of the Philadelphia Film Festival, world debuting at the International House of Philadelphia tomorrow night at 7 p.m. More than 250 seats have already sold through tonight, Martin said, but walk-up tickets will be available. $10, dress casual.
