The junior class of Casco Bay High School (CBHS) invites the public to a premiere of student-made documentaries: “Detroit: Stories from Inside the City.” The free event will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 6, at the Nickelodeon Cinemas, located at 1 Temple St.

CBHS junior Skylar Cummings explained the “Junior Journey,” an annual learning expedition for 11th-graders, of which the documentaries are a part: “As a class, we have been examining the widening gap between rich and poor in our country. In late April, 92 juniors traveled to Detroit to help those who are rebuilding the city and to uncover individual stories of economic inequality. Teams of students have created documentaries on people living in Detroit. … Join us for a night of justice and empowerment, as we unveil these powerful stories.”

The event will include live music performances, a photo auction, and the film premiere.  Although there is no charge for the event, donations will be accepted for the Tricycle Collective, a Detroit nonprofit.
