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 Friday, June 5, 2015 at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on WXXI World.
This program is part of WXXI's American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen Initiative: a public media initiative to stem the dropout crisis by supporting community-based solutions. Learn more at: http://wxxi.org/grad
