Precious - Education Event

Lee Daniel's film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire was one of the most talked about titles of 2009, and this was in no small part due to the acclaimed debut performance of Gabourey Sidibe as an illiterate New York teenager struggling to make a better life for herself and her children. In this Festival education event chaired by British producer Marc Boothe, young people were able to listen to Gabby's frank responses on her preparation, her audition process, and her incredible journey in making the film with some of her personal heroes, including Lenny Kravitz and Mariah Carey.
