Surviving the High School Grind with comedian Irene Tu.

Live from San Francisco’s KQED, Independent Lens and Meaningful Movies Project bring you a rousing night, inspired by clips from the new documentary Try Harder! about the academic pressure-cooker of SF’s Lowell High School and stressed-out seniors chasing the college dream.

Comedian Irene Tu hosts an evening of live storytelling and conversation with high school students about the high stakes of educational achievement and whether college is worth the grind.

This event is hosted by KQED and Independent Lens, in collaboration with the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), Basin PBS, KIXE PBS, Meaningful Movies Project, and Panhandle PBS / KACV.

The event will be livestreamed on Monday, May 2nd at 7pm on the Independent Lens Facebook page.
