Reactions to First Generation
The film was powerful. It was one of the most impactful educational films I have seen relative to college access.
Hours, days, and weeks following the screening of the film, one-on-one advising sessions that I would have with students became more substantive and “meaty” compared to how they were at the beginning of the year for the simple fact students were constantly referring back to something they saw in the film that related to their current situation.
The film was great! Very well done and while some parts sad, overall motivating and positive to increase awareness and make college going cultures for underrepresented students within communities. Great for families and admissions/ high school professionals to see and share!
