2001 – For the Record
Synopsis : In June 2000, a young filmmaker, Jay Prychidny, witnessed an incident of alcohol poisoning at his “after-grad” party. The video replicates the event as well as the confusion around how to respond appropriately.
The video and guide have been produced to help youth, and the people who work with them, develop safety strategies to reduce their risks. The guide will support the teacher/facilitator in examining some key issues and lead youth in coming up with “safer partying” plans.
The video became a springboard for discussions about taking responsibility for a friend, and when to call for help.
