RABBIT HOLE SCREENINGS

Learning from Movies

Humans learn by imitating what they see, and movies are some of our earliest and most powerful teachers. Rabbit Hole harnesses this power to engage kids with school, broaden their media literacy and encourage them to speak, write and think about their own stories.

Rabbit Hole Screenings is a nonprofit organization whose mission it is to bring classic films into the lives of inner city students.  The movies, often in support of a teacher’s curriculum, are used as catalysts for shared self-reflection and journaling.  Films are used to ignite conversation about the emotional, cultural, historical and social experiences that go along with the power of moving images. 

Rabbit Hole reaches into the broad community of Los Angeles to support the in class and after classroom work. It’s built a constituency of writers, educators, local Universities and filmmakers to support the experience.

Our belief is that a deepened engagement with watching and discussing these film stories and characters with one’s peers and teachers, will strengthen a student’s critical and emotional thinking, and therefore, one’s sense of self esteem.  RH seeks to establish an ongoing dialogue that makes classic movies a working part of the emotional and intellectual lives of as diverse a community of students as possible.
