Syracuse 7th grade view of EDSA '86

The story is one many of us here in Manila know all too well- and perhaps- something we rarely get to see for its impact it had around the world. These Middle School students put this toether on their own in a very clear and well laid out presentation - for Jr High School group of kids they did a job many in Media would have to say - well done if onyl for the way it was edited put together and voiced.
Although the story is little thin in its overall depth of actual events that happened - you have to give these kids credit for putting the whole thing togther as well as they did.
A lot if it is based on video from the made for TV movie a 'dangerous life'... and other news clips.
This is a documentary project on the 1986 Philippines EDSA Revolution, written, composed and edited by three 7th grade students from Syracuse, New York, for the Junior Group Documentary category of National History Day 2006. This documentary took first place at the regional level, second place at the New York state level, and narrowly missed becoming one of the top 12 finalists in the National History Day competition held from June 11-15, 2006 at the University of Maryland. This documentary also commemorates the 20th anniversary of the 1986 EDSA Revolution that restored democracy in the Philippines after 20 years of martial law. This documentary gratefully acknowledges the not-for-profit fair use of copyrighted video and graphical material from various sources listed in the end credits.
