About Afterschool

A truly impressive new voice in American indie film, Antonio Campos arrives with AFTERSCHOOL, a riveting look at the dark side of youth in the media age. An official selection of the Cannes, Berlin, SXSW and New York Film Festivals in 2008, this outstanding feature debut was also nominated for 2 Gotham awards including Best Director, and the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature.

Robert is a young American student at an elite East Coast preparatory school. When he accidentally captures on camera the horrific death of two girls, he’s tasked with memorializing their lives in a film meant to help speed up the school's healing process. For some, this exercise only deepens the trauma…

Acclaim

"ADMIRABLE...HYPNOTIC...Campos is a cinematic disciple of Stanley Kubrick and latter period Gus Van Sant."
Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
