Open Hydrant is the only theater company in the Bronx. The group, led by Luis Cardenas and Sarah Rosenberg, two theater professors at the Bronx Preparatory Charter School, trains youths coming from low-income communities to become professional actors. Bronx Preparatory alumni, former students of Cardenas and Rosenberg, are now trying to teach acting to teenagers in Hunts Point, one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York City.
This is a first cut of some of the first scenes we shot for a documentary focusing on the group. This documentary is filmed and produced with Jan Hendrik Hinzel.
