        Trust: Second Acts in Young Lives

        Trust: Second Acts in Young Lives is the true story of 18-year-old Marlin, from Honduras, who survives sexual abuse, immigration to the United States, and substance abuse. Most of the story takes place at APTP, the Albany Park Theater Project in Chicago. APTP is an after-school theater program that makes plays out of people’s real-life stories. This is a documentary—the kids in the film are not actors. Marlín’s story has difficult themes but nothing graphic. The focus is on how the other youth turn her story into a play.

        Trust: Hidden Cargo

        In this video, Marlín tells her immigration story from Honduras. It complements Lesson 6: Hidden Cargo/Immigration—Writing an Audio Feature on page 52 where students create audio commentaries to explore the issues of migration and immigration.

Students learn to focus on sound, instead of sight, as a means of expression and to mix technology and artistry to create a final product.
