TRY HARDER!

Directed by Debbie Lum

Filmmakers in attendance. Film program will be followed by Q&A

Relive your senior year anxieties through the journeys of five gifted and charismatic students from San Francisco’s prestigious Lowell High School, as they enter the gauntlet known as college admissions to try and get into the elite universities of their (or their parents’) dreams. This endearing documentary by Debbie Lum enjoyed a successful world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and we’re pleased to host its Los Angeles Premiere ahead of its official release on PBS in 2022. — Marvin Yueh
