Anaheim Union High School District Will Present Preview of Documentary “KILLING ED”

ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, March 6, 2016—The Anaheim Union High School District will present a showing of the provocative new documentary “KILLING ED” on Tuesday, March 8, at Anaheim High School’s Cook Auditorium.

The documentary, which premiered last week in New York City and is set for release nationally, is produced by Mark S Hall. Hall is a risk-taking documentary filmmaker and lawyer based in Austin, Texas, whose curiosity and unusual set of skills drive him to tell complex stories for the public good.

The award-winning producer and director of SUSHI: THE GLOBAL CATCH (2012), Hall was an impartial citizen volunteering at a nonprofit when he stumbled upon a troubling story. His new feature-length documentary film KILLING ED discusses the corruption and corrosive influence of a little-known, global religious group known as the Gülen Movement that operates one of the largest network of taxpayer-funded charter schools in the U.S., under a worst-case-scenario—schools with questionable academic, labor, and H1-B visa standards.

If you would like to reserve a seat at the preview, please email PIO Pat Karlak at Karlak_p@auhsd.us. The movie begins at 6 p.m. in Cook Auditorium at 811 Lincoln Avenue, Anaheim 92805. Following the film, there will be a question-and-answer session.

The filmmaker is available for interviews upon request.
