News   Behind-the-Scenes Documentary, "School Play," to Screen in Santa Fe
Five elementary school students on the cusp of their pre-teen years embark on the yellow brick road toward adulthood in a new behind-the-scenes documentary "School Play."

Documentary filmmakers Rick Velleu and Eddie Rosenstein followed five children in an elementary school production of The Wizard of Oz.

The 72-minute film centers on Jeff, Joey, Nick, Elizabeth and Isabelle, students in a suburban New York community who reveal their own perceptions on life as they face the pressures of performing in a school play with elaborate sets, costumes and a full orchestra.

The documentary, according to press notes, "sheds light onto the seldom-heard philosophies of young people and in the process, takes us back to that age when the world was small and the possibilities were endless."

Named the Best Documentary at the Big Apple Film Festival in Manhattan in November, "School Play" will be screened Dec. 4 and 6 as part of the 9th annual Santa Fe Film Festival.
