Who Rules? Video Debut

_Who Rules?_ Video Debut

The New York City Council passes laws and approves the city budget. But, as important as their role is, few people know how the City Council actually works. How does it make decisions? And how can you interact with it?

In this latest Urban Investigation, CUP and teaching artist Dillon de Give tackled these questions with a group of public high school students from International Community High School in Mott Haven. To find out how the City Council works, the students interviewed City Council staff and members—including Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito—as well as staff from city agencies. They created a short video to share what they learned.

Who Rules? debuted at Anthology Film Archives, where students enthusiastically presented the video and discussed their creative process.
