“Who was your most inspirational teacher?
For thousands of students in the Bronx and elsewhere, that teacher is a man named Pedro Santana.
Yes, we’ve seen inspiring documentaries about the failings of our Public Education system before. Yes, woe’ve seen stories of inspirational educators who bravely try to change the system.
But if you don’t know Pedro….well, you don’t know jack! Pedro may just be the definition of an iconoclast. In a story as uplifting as it is troubling, he is a man who throws a very wide shadow. This brilliant documentary might at first seem like deja vu, before the story zigs and zags in ways that leave you thinking…”OMG, didn’t see that coming.”
Wonderfully human, yet epically important, My Name Is Pedro will challenge your notion of what it means to be “Fiercely Independent” as it brings into focus how seriously in jeopardy our country’s education system is.”
