Two sisters, one a young beauty who chooses passion over logic, the other a law student whose fixed moral compass keeps her from following her desires, are uprooted from their luxurious home when their father suddenly passes away. Out of money and out of options, the women move into their Great Aunt Aurelia's modest, but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood where they find themselves thrown into a world that, despite their heritage, seems completely foreign. Over time, they discover the beauty of the culture they once fought so desperately to hide. And in the process they find the one thing that had eluded them: love.

August to June: Bring Life to School

    • Unrated
    • 88 min

    Intimately and exuberantly, AUGUST TO JUNE is a voice for values we are on the brink of losing in the single-minded pursuit of higher test scores for our students! In the era of No Child Left Behind rigidity, we spend a year in a public school classroom happily going against the current. The film follows 26 8-10 year-olds as they write poems, raise chickens, resolve differences, and find their own voices. With humor and poignancy AUGUST TO JUNE reveals some of the complexity involved in a meaningful education, and gently asks audiences to stop and consider how we achieve the goal of curious and creative adults able to support a democratic society.
