Real Art Ways is presenting the documentary film, AMERICAN TEACHER

Starting this Friday, October 28th Real Art Ways will be presenting American Teacher, a film that chronicles the stories of four teachers living and working in a disparate urban and rural areas of the country.  Their stories are told through a mixture of footage and interviews with students, families, and colleagues, as well as the teachers themselves.  By following these teachers as they reach different milestones in their careers, the film tells the deeper story of the teaching profession in American today.  Real Art Ways will be hosting a post-film panel discussion on Friday, October 28th after the 7 pm screening.  The film is based on the New York Times bestselling book Teachers have it easy by journalist and teacher Daniel Moulthrop, co-founder of the 826 National writing programs Ninive Calegari, and writer Dave Eggers.  American Teacher is produced by Eggers and Calegari, produced and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth, and narrated by Matt Damon.

Real Art Ways is located at 56 Arbor Street in Hartford.
