Rewind… a film about choices
In 2003 Robb formed an idea about making an substance abuse educational film for schools. It was a film that needed to deal with the most common drugs of choice… not just one or two. It also needed to reflect the perspective and thoughts of teens. Robb found a group of teens with a wide variety of experiences in drugs and alcohol. They offered their opinions and experiences… good and bad. They took their own cameras a filmed their world of drug use first hand, then offered their experiences for others to learn from. The result was the award winning film REWIND…a Film about Choices.
This twenty seven minute film can be presented in any secondary school classroom. It will be sure to generate interest and a meaningful discussion after viewing. To obtain a copy of Rewind click here.
