Devastated by the arrival of crack cocaine in the 1980’s, Washington, DC became known as our nation’s “Murder Capital.” Growing up at the epicenter of this violence – in southeast DC – 67 rising seventh graders were promised college scholarships if they graduated high school.
Southeast 67 is an intimate portrait of three of these students and the two educators who worked with them day in and out in the hopes of helping them to break free of the cycle of poverty plaguing their neighborhood. Combining raw, never-before-seen archival film footage and photographs with present day footage of the students 20 years later, the film captures their struggle to achieve an improbable dream. It is an unexpected story of heartbreak, perseverance, resiliency and love - and one that will reshape your very idea of what it means to succeed.
