November 6, 2023 Leave a Comment
The short, boldly-told documentaries explore critical issues that impact young adults and the world they live in. In-depth, yet digestible, FRONTLINE Short Docs aim to cut through the noise and misinformation often found on social media. Audiences can watch the episodes on FRONTLINE’s YouTube channel and the free PBS App.
Featuring the personal stories and experiences of young adults, these five- to 10-minute mini-documentaries help young people think deeply about the issues that shape our world today: a harrowing escape from a wildfire; a young artist facing imprisonment in Russia for protesting the war in Ukraine; an examination of how Black people’s right to vote has been suppressed in the U.S. over the years; the enduring reflections of some of the last people to survive the Holocaust as teenagers.
