TEACHED Short Film Series
Loudspeaker Films' signature project is TEACHED, an award-winning series of short documentary films that candidly examine the causes and consequences of race-based opportunity gaps in America with a particular focus on the experiences of African American boys.
The TEACHED films are short (around 10-20 min. each) to serve as provocative conversation starters. TEACHED films have been screened by the U.S. Department of Education, SXSWEdu, React to Film, the Fulbright Association, ASU-GSV Education Innovation Summit, Salesforce, LInkedIn, and numerous film festivals, non-profit organizations and universities (see the full list here).
The five TEACHED films released so far —The Path to Prison, The Blame Game, Unchartered Territory, Code Oakland and Think of Calvin—have won a range of film festival awards including from Napa Valley, Harlem, Houston, Canada, (In)Justice for All and Los Angeles Independent. Producer & Director Kelly Amis was awarded the Teach for America Social Innovation Award for creating the series.
