759: Boy Scouts of Harlem

From the GNYC Website:

“759: Boy Scouts of Harlem” depicts the journey of boys in Harlem’s Scout Troop 759 from the city streets to the woods at Ten Mile River Scout Reservation’s Camp Keowa.  Filmmakers Jake Boritt and Justin Szlasa realistically show the boys experience at summer camp, the quintessential American rite of passage, through recognizable experiences:  fear and ultimate conquering of swimming in the lake, adolescent voice breaking and young crushes on the Russian girls working in the dining hall, late night talks with their troopmates and leaders, and ultimately, going home.  The humor and relationships of the boys make the film come to life.
