Screening of New Film Up to Us at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus Nov. 5
Miami, October 25, 2012 -
Just in time for the 2012 election, Miami Dade College (MDC) will screen the new documentary film Up to Us at 6 p.m., Monday, Nov. 5, at the college’s
Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami. Presented by OurTime.org and Generation18, the film highlights the onemillionnewjobs.org campaign as a viable pathway toward increasing economic mobility, while it makes the case for voting as a means of supporting the measure. There will be a Q & A session and panel discussion following the film.
Up to Us was produced with support from Own the Vote (www.ownthevote.us), an initiative from Comcast and NBC Universal that aims to engage and educate young voters about the impact of voting. The 20-minute film follows two young men out to serve their country. Atlanta native Kyle Murphy, 23, who served as an AmeriCorps member at Habitat for Humanity, and Brandon West, 27 with a Masters in Public Administration, who is underemployed and seeking work in a public service field. Footage was shot over the summer in New York, Atlanta and at both the Democratic and Republican Conventions.
Own the Vote has partnered with ElectNext, Rock the Vote and the National Constitution Center to help create awareness about and encourage voter registration and voter participation.
The film screening is free and open to the public. It will be live-streamed as well.
