Listen Up! Film by & about Vermont Teens

June 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


         The Listen Up Project is an original  Vermont musical production based on eight months of interviews, workshops, conversations and listening sessions with more than 800 teens across Vermont. The show was written and performed by Vermont youth. Bess O’Brien, award winning documentary filmmaker,  was directing producer for the project. All teens, parents of teens and people who are concerned about youth and the future of our community are welcome to attend!

         Listen Up! Will be showing at the Bellows Falls Opera House on Thursday, June 4. Doors will open at 6pm, and the film will run at 6:30, and be followed by a short panel discussion and Q & A addressing youth issues in our community. The panel will be facilitated by Dr. Dottie Morris, Keene State College’s Chief Officer of Diversitry and Multiculturalism.

        The Humanity Network, a local community-building organization founded by Jeanette Staley and Michelle Bos-Lun is arranging the showing of the 2021 film as an opportunity to get our neighbors together to listen and learn about issues facing Vermont youth based and get some conversations started about how we can build a supportive community. The film is free though donations are welcome to support the cost of showing the film.
