for ahkeem - presented by St. Louis Press Club
Documentary Film on Saturday, June 6, 2018 (Free)

After a school fight lands 17-year old Daje Shelton in a court-supervised alternative high school, she's determined to turn things around and make a better future for herself in her rough St. Louis neighborhood. But focusing on school is tough as she loses multiple friends to gun violence, falls in love for the first time, and becomes pregnant with a boy, Ahkeem, just as Ferguson erupts a few miles down the road. Through Daje’s intimate coming-of-age story, For Ahkeem illuminates challenges that many Black teenagers face in America today, and witnesses the strength, resilience, and determination it takes to survive.

* Top 10 Lists in Entertainment Weekly (“Must List”) and People Magazine (“People Pick”)
* Daje Shelton named on the Cinema Eye Honors List of “Unforgettables” in 2017, subjects that “helped to define documentary cinema in 2017” –  IndieWire
* Winner of 10 awards—including 7 "Best Feature Documentary" awards—and an official Selection of over 60 film festivals and counting
