My name is Syed - I am from Malaysia. My group mates and I are working on a movie script, based on a book "Lives of Children" by George Dennison. The book tells of the true account of The First Street School, which opened in the Lower East Side of NY, in the mid-60s.
It was a progressive school built to help educate children from the slums of NY.
It's a very touching and honest account of empathy. Which is why we are looking to turn this into a film.
The job will for now be a one off thing, and we were hoping if thère was anyone out there living or visiting the United States would be willing to send through some reasearch documents over to us in Malaysia.
The documents are in a University library in Massachusetts.
(Expenses will be paid of course - on top of the fixed fee)
