Hero and Project Description: 

Lee’s innovative teaching idea, “Silent But Not Voiceless Film,” focuses on creating a semester-long study and exploration of music, which can often be seen as a means for promoting political, social, and economic “justice”. Students engaged in the project will construct a silent film, complete with background music and title cards, that creatively summarizes their understanding of economic justice. With the Voya grant, Lee’s students will be able to play the roles of producer, director, writer, actor, and editor — providing an opportunity to participate in all parts of the filmmaking process. This will also include research, storyboarding, filming and editing. The final products will be showcased at a silent film festival, inviting parents, staff, students and other community members to watch and celebrate the final products.
