Our goal was to expand the walls of our classroom into the community, taking a group of students from grades nine through twelve with us, transforming them into a production crew capable of producing our feature film, "The Change Agents."
The Change Agents is a story for our times about Carly Dutoff and her peers who find themselves in the midst of family difficulties while coming of age in an era of environmental degradation. Set in a beautiful mountain town in western Canada, the story revolves around Carly, who is a Doukhobor girl living with her curmudgeonly Deda (grandfather) during her final year of high school. Disconnected from her Deda and obsessed with environmental issues, she becomes alienated from her peers - many of whom support the environmental movement in principle but “still want to have fun.”
"A determined Carly organizes an unlikely group of teens into a youth driven movement that challenges her community and all Canadians to step up and show environmental global leadership."
