Paramount Home Media Distribution announced that every high school in the United States will receive a free DVD of the award winning film ‘Selma’. In addition, teachers will receive free companion study material and guides to assist them with discussions regarding the movie and the time period depicted in it.
“We hope to reach all 18 million high school students with the film’s powerful and inspiring story. With many of these students preparing to vote for the first time in next year’s elections, it is especially fitting that they witness the bravery and fortitude of those who fought to establish the Voting Rights Act of 1965,” shared Megan Colligan, president, Worldwide Distribution and Marketing, Paramount Pictures.
Director, Ava Duvernay also shared, “To think that this triumphant story of dignity and justice will be available to every high school in this country is a realization of many dreams and many hopes.”
