Description
Filmed over a six-year period, RAISING BERTIE follows the lives of three young black men growing up in Bertie County, North Carolina. Challenged by poverty and a lack of educational opportunities, these boys strive to establish their identities as they make the transition into adulthood. This powerful vérité film takes an intimate look at the obstacles faced by underprivileged youth in America today. The result is an eye-opening experience that encourages us to recognize the lives and communities all too often ignored by mainstream media.
