Lev Media Group is excited to announce a private screening of ON THE LINE: WHERE SACRIFICE BEGINS, a documentary focused on the Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity’s (METCO) beginnings, current success and its future. METCO is the longest voluntary desegregation busing program in the nation, which originated in Massachusetts in 1966.
Lev Films produced and directed this film in celebration of METCO’s 50th Anniversary, incorporating original interviews, field footage and recordings of the Boston minority students who attended school in the affluent community of Lexington, MA. METCO continues to thrive today, positively impacting the lives of participants.
Lev Media Group founder, Mike Mascoll, attended public school in Lexington as part of the METCO program, which led him to Boston College to earn a degree in Speech Communications with a concentration in Media Studies. His passion for the program spurred his journey in creating On the Line: Where Sacrifice Begins.
The private screening of the documentary will take place on Sunday, October 30th at 4:00 pm at Harvard University School of Education and will be open to the public. Harvard students may attend a screening at 1:00 pm. Following the screening, guests can enjoy a panel discussion and reception with light refreshments. Cost is free for attendees, but all must RSVP by October 10, as seating is limited.
