Some Girls focuses on a group of troubled Latina teens from a Bronx-based suicide prevention program who are transformed by an exploration of their roots via the use of ancestral DNA testing, followed by a trip to the seat of the Americas. On that journey to modern-day Dominican Republic, the white supremacist narratives about American history they've been taught are challenged, leaving them free to re-construct their own respective identities. What does it really mean to be American? And, more importantly, what does that look like? Raquel Cepeda (director/producer) Henry Chalfant (producer). 

The Film will be followed by a panel discussion with Raquel Cepeda, Henry Chalfant and Beatriz Coronel (mental health expert, featured in the film).
