Amitanshu Das researched and planned a year-long Academically Based Community Service (ABCS) course where a team of Penn and high school students will create and co-produce an original motion picture drawn from their own lived and observed experiences then fictionalized. The course experience will merge film art, self-expression, youth voice and agency supported and sensitized by contemporary ideas and approaches of trauma-informed practice.
