First Generation tells the story of four high school students – an inner city athlete, a small town waitress, a Samoan warrior dancer, and the daughter of migrant field works – who set out to break the cycle of poverty and bring hope to their families and communities by pursing a college education. Shot over the course of three years and featuring some of our nation’s top educational expert (Richard Kahlenberg, The Century Foundation: J.B. Schramm, College Summit; Dr. Bill Tierney, University of South California), the film explores the problem of college access faced by first generation and low-income students and how their success has major implications for the future of our nation.
