A Touch of Greatness
Born To Fly Premiere on PBS Independent Lens
"The inspiration in this film goes far beyond creating
a healthy lifestyle and communities...Sadie and Safiyah present questions, discuss how
best to go about answering those questions, and
contemplate who they should talk to in order to
understand the issues they raise. They are tough
on city officials, try foods they are unfamiliar with,
spend time working on a family farm, and make
connections between each component of the
project all along the way. Their inquiries inspire
one school to provide healthier options for their
students, despite the lack of funds and
administrative will to facilitate the process. This film can inspire students to ask their own tough
questions and pursue their own answers, in
addition to encouraging them to think critically
about what they eat and make healthy choices. It
shows them their actions can create real change."
