Ryan Coogler-Produced Doc 'Homeroom' Chronicles Students In Oakland Working To Remove Police In School [Exclusive]

Shadow and Act has a new exclusive clip for Homeroom, the upcoming acclaimed documentary directed by Peter Nicks executive produced by Ryan Coogler. It won a special jury prize at Sundance earlier this year.

Here’s the description: A Sundance Official Selection, Homeroom follows Oakland High School’s class of 2020 as they confront an unprecedented year. Anxiety over test scores and college applications gives way to uncertainty springing from a rapidly developing pandemic. Efforts to eliminate the school district’s police force unfold against the backdrop of growing nationwide demands for systemic change. 

Watch an exclusive featurette on Homeroom which features Coogler below:

The film is directed by Peter Nicks, produced by Nicks and Sean Havey and executive produced by Ryan Coogler. It is Concordia Studio, Open’hood production, in association with XTR and Proximity Media. Other executive producers include Laurene Powell Jobs, Davis Guggenheim, Nicole Stott, Jonathan Silberberg, Jen Rainin, Tony Hsieh, Bryn Mooser and Kathryn Everett.

Homeroom is Nicks’ final chapter in a trilogy of films – The Waiting Room (2012) and The Force (2017) – examining the relationship between health care, criminal justice, and education in Oakland, CA over the past decade. All three documentaries will be available to stream on Hulu starting on August 12. Homeroom will also be in theaters, in addition to Hulu, beginning the same day.
