We hosted the the Peapod Art and Music Academy premiere of there short film Love, Life and Hate. The film was directed by a group 13-14 year olds that live in Watts. They interviewed other teenagers in there neighborhood to create a short documentary about the things they deal with in love, life and hate in 2011. I was really proud and blown away by what they presented. With students like these the future is so bright. Watch them all below.
The Peapod Arts & Music Academy was founded by the Black Eyed Peas, each year students who go throught the academy create a thesis project they present at their graduation...these films are one of the things the amazing students completed during their time at Peapod.

2.2.2011 - SF'SS our new Short Film Screening Series
Were happy to announce our first original programming starts in 2011! Fist up is our Short Film Screening Series SF'SS happens the evening of February 2.
So the general principle behind SF'SS is to continue the process of further engaging our audience. Because we are in LA and so many of the people who visit our space are creatives that work in Hollywood it seemed like a very appropriate thing to initiate. In art even for those that do not work in the film industry, the usage of film and video is becoming a more popular tool in ways of extracting, creating and displaying it.
