Radical tells a deeply moving true story that highlights a widespread challenge: potential is everywhere, but opportunity is not. It also
highlights what may be an answer to these challenges, kids exploring their inherent resources: their curiosities and communities.

Set in Matamoros, a Mexican city along the U.S. border, the systemic challenges shown in the film mirror the challenges many youth face across the world, where students of colour face compounded systemic and historic inequities like fewer community and school resources, graduation rates below the national average, and are often underrepresented in advanced mathematics and science classes.

Starring Eugenio Derbez, Daniel Haddad, and Jennifer Trejo

Directed and Written by Christopher Zalla
