Surviving the High School Grind with Comedian Irene Tu

Date and Time
Monday, May 2, 2022 7:00 PM (PT)

KQED and Independent Lens bring you a rousing night inspired by the new documentary Try Harder! about the academic pressure-cooker of San Francisco's Lowell High School and stressed-out seniors chasing the college dream. Comedian Irene Tu hosts an evening of live storytelling, conversation with Bay Area students, and film clips about the high stakes of educational achievement and whether college is worth the grind.
