"Those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche experiences. They are NOT. Audiences want to see them, and, in FACT, they make money.
The world is ROUND, people!"

PORTRAITS OF NEW YORK CITY EDUCATORS AFTER SCHOOL
After the bell has rung and students vanish in a blaze of noise, Brooklyn-based Aliza Eliazarov captures New York City educators in the quiet after the chaos. A former teacher of eight years, Eliazarov describes this time as a poignant moment in each day, the silence flooded with a range of emotions. Posing a series of simple questions, Eliazarov allows these teachers for once to turn the attention to their own personal musings and burdens. Whether the response is pensive or anxious, content or exhausted, each teacher endures with an unceremonious bravery and resolve. Honoring those seldom thanked, See Me After School is a glimpse into the everyday triumphs and trials of today’s resilient educators.
