The Faculty Room

Written and Directed by: William Electric Black

"A hard lockdown in an urban high school forces the faculty to face  

their own demons, not just the ones lurking in the hallways with guns." 

The faculty members of James Baldwin High School find themselves 

in a mandatory lockdown because two star players on the girls' basketball team  

have a quarrel over a common boyfriend. Their argument has escalated to armed conflict because of the prevalence of guns in school.
