Congratulations to "Know How" director Juan Carlos Piñeiro Escoriaza! The project received the most votes to win June's Project of the Month. The prize is a creative consultation and Tribeca Film Institute.
Here's a look at the film's pitch:
KNOW HOW is not a documentary nor is it fiction. It’s a new hybrid approach for using film to create social change. Instead of professional screenwriters and actors, these stories are written and performed by a cast of ordinary foster care youth, and their performances are powerful, moving, and eye-opening. KNOW HOW is a musical that brings authentic voices and unseen stories to the screen. It's a bit of a cross between The Wire and Glee, but not really. And it really aims at driving social change.
