East New York students say ‘#Enough’ with school shootings in short film

BROOKLYN -

Students from the Performing Arts and Technology High School in East New York created a short film that reenacts the events of a school.

Representatives told News 12 that the trauma and fear are explored in the film called "#Enough."

The students mainly used cell phones to film and were directed by Vivid Imagination.

The local organization works with schools around the city to help students use technology to tell stories on social issues.

During the film, people will see the excitement of one student getting into the college of his choice and another one happy about giving a speech. However, their dreams are shattered when a school shooting takes place.

"All our lives we lived to basically follow our dreams and be the people we are best capable to be, and for just all of that to be gone in a minute, that’s just so terrifying,” said Nelson Melendez, a student featured in the film.
