SUPERKIDS 2, a feature-length documentary more than 10 years in the making, revisits (in the style of the Up Series) a group of five gifted kids who we shot with back in 2004 for an hour-long CBC documentary called Superkids. The film follows a ‘where are they now’ format but also incorporates student, parent and expert commentary on the controversial issues of identifying, labelling, segregating and accelerating gifted kids. In doing so the documentary explores not only individual lives but also questions about education in general, whether they concern children, parents or teachers.
SUPERKIDS 2 receives its world premiere screening on May 16, 2019 at the Vancity Theatre in Vancouver. A panel discussion and reception will follow the screening. Click here for the Vancity Theatre box office.
