As You Are, the teen drama shot in Albany, set roughly in Albany and made by Albany Free School graduates, won a special jury award in the U.S. dramatic category at the Sundance Film Festival.
The film, which tells the tale of three teenagers who struggle, bond and explore self and sexuality in the early 1990s, was directed by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte and co-written by Joris-Peyrafitte and Madison Harrison. Both studied at the Free School with program director Bhawin Suchak in a filmmaking program that would become Youth FX the following summer. Bhawin was on hand for all the excitement of 6 sold our screenings, rave reviews and the huge awards night celebration.
