Bullying Isn’t Nice

Students at the West Prep Academy talk about bullying. Bullying is aggressive behavior that is intentional and that involves an imbalance of power or strength. Often, it is repeated over time and can take many forms. In many respects, research on bullying prevention is still in its infancy. Although researchers have documented success of some comprehensive programs in reducing bullying, we still have much to learn about which aspects of these programs are most important*.

This video have been created and directed by Pablo Herrera, with Alex Faoro, Kent Jackman, Nolan Padilla, Nathael Louis and Shonda Westbrook, through a series of after school workshops developed with more than 70 students at the West Preparatory Academy in Harlem, New York City.

Reel Works Teen Filmmaking, the organization behind this after school program at the “West Prep,” has been founded in Brooklyn 20 years ago. Reel Works serves over 800 youth annually from middle school through high school and beyond, developing them as young artists and citizens and helping them graduate, get into college, and launch careers in media. It’s a powerful combination that changes young lives while creating startling and original films that have been seen by millions of viewers worldwide.

The fifth record on NEW YORK TRAX is by Løt.te, the Turkish-born, Brooklyn-based DJ, producer and designer affiliated with The Bunker New York by virtue of two well-received vinyl releases. This politically charged EP titled ‘State of Exception’ is Løt.te’s personal reflection on the current social and political climate in Turkey. The opening ‘Ultra Vires’ is a relentless synth-driven warehouse track mercilessly rolling at the speed of 140BPM.
