Students make movie about bullying, school shootings
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An idea that started between students in a classroom at Valiant Christian Academy is making its way to the big screen.
Each year the drama class makes a movie. This year they created "Pushed."
"I don't want to just do something for the sake of time, just to fill up time," teacher Chris Salvo said. "I want to send a good message with it."
The film focuses on a student who is being bullied, and then retaliates by bullying others.
"It hurts your feelings, you don't want someone to go through that," 17-year-old Travis Maple told us.
Sixty kids are part of the production. They're hoping to help a lot more students who might be suffering.
"I hope that everyone sees it, but mostly the people who are going through a struggle with bullying and that they see that bullying back and then retaliating in a negative manor isn't the answer," 17-year-old student Lison Yarbrough said. "They can come back in a positive way."
"Pushed" will play May 7 at the Baxter Avenue Theatre. The tickets are $10.
