Connecticut Teen Creates Bullying Short Film To Be Screened To the Public

Hartford Courant (Hartford, CT) January 27, 2014

"A teen made anti-bullying short film directed by 19 year old Nicholas Lamoreux is planned to be screened at Hamden's 'The Space' arts venue with the intention to bring about change among children and teenagers. The event will host two screenings; at 4 p.m. and 5:40 p.m., offering a band performance as the intermission. His short film 'Forgive Me' takes a "peer to peer" approach in an attempt to educate and empathize with students affected by bullying. All are welcome to attend, and tickets will be available upon entering.
