Behind the Swings: Produced by The Berkeley Youth Institute

Wednesday February 12, 2014 - 08:00:00 PM

Parks are where children grow up, homeless people live and communities come together. We have created a documentary film to show the role of parks in the Berkeley community and present it to the public. The documentary follows the stories of a variety of people and their experiences in parks. Behind the Swings focuses on safety, park activity, and park histories. In the end, we hope that the viewer will understand why parks are such powerful and appealing environments to so many different people. -more-
