Our Time is Now is a coming-of-age documentary following six New Mexico teenagers as they strive to finish high school, wrestle with personal challenges, and pursue their dreams.
Low graduation rates and poverty dominate the story of New Mexico education. However, when examined through the lens of rural New Mexican students, a dynamic and more complex set of human narratives emerge – of deep family ties, perseverance, cultural traditions, bridging worlds, personal struggle and success. Our Time is Now airs Thursday, September 26 at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. and Friday, September 27 at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on WXXI World.
This program is part of WXXI's American Graduate project to educate the community on the dropout problem, rally support to get the community involved, and help provide pathways to community resources to address the problem. To learn more visit our website.
