At a middle school in suburban New Jersey, the 6th-grade students participate in an end-of-the-year rite of passage: they compose a letter to their future 18-year-old selves. After the letters are written and sealed, two dedicated teachers safely lock them away for six years….and wait. When these same students are about to graduate high school, the teachers mail the letters back to their authors. For 25 years, no one was allowed behind the curtain to witness the poignant moment when the contents of these letters are revealed, until now. DEAR FUTURE ME, a new documentary short film in two parts, features both high school seniors opening their prophetic letters and 6th graders writing to their future selves. The results are surprising, engaging, emotional and most of all, heartwarming. www.hp.com/dearfutureme
I’m not crying, you’re crying! I love how HP created a short documentary film for students to share their voices. Ping me if you agree!
