ABOUT THE FILM-

Precious Knowledge interweaves the transformative stories of students in the Mexican American Studies Program at Tucson High School. The program has become a model of educational success with 100% of their students graduating from high school and 82% attending college. We filmed their social justice throughout an entire school year to document disenfranchised youth becoming engaged, informed and active Chicanos. However, Arizona lawmakers believe the students are being indoctrinated with dangerous ideology and that the classes teach anti-American, anti-capitalist destructive ethnic chauvinism.

Precious Knowledge is a co-production of Dos Vatos Productions and the Independent Television Service, produced in association with Latino Public Broadcasting and Arizona Public Media, with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
