The Experiment, Fleurish Productions

Project development, research, field producing services, and consultancy

CecilFilm provided Director/Producer Ben Lemoine and Fleurish Productions with co-production services for his documentary THE EXPERIMENT, which films five children, ages 9 to 11, through the 2009-2010 school year and interviews national leaders in education, as well as state and city officials. Lemoine takes an inside look at the current state of education and the social issues that surround it in New Orleans, and explores both the political and the personal implications of these changes. THE EXPERIMENT examines the debate through the eyes of those it affects most, and poses the questions that no one seems to be asking – is this a “great experiment” or “privatization.” And are these changes ultimately in the best interests of the children of New Orleans? THE EXPERIMENT is set to premiere at the 2011 New Orleans Film Festival.
