Finding redemption in a broken system.
A captivating drama-musical, Juan Carlos Pineiro Escoriaza’s Know How brings an incredible cinematic experience: a film written and acted by foster care youth, ripped from the stories of their lives. From committing crime in order to eat to surviving an uncaring treatment facility, these youth face unimaginable circumstances, but this musical brings authentic voices and their unseen stories to the screen. Know How is not a documentary nor is it fiction. It’s a hybrid approach for using film to create social change. With powerful performances and both heart-wrenching and heartwarming stories, the hope and strength of these NYC youth will leave you nothing less than inspired.
