Try Harder!

Try Harder!

Debbie Lum, Producer/Director; Amy Ferraris, Co-Producer


At San Francisco’s #1 public high school - the competitive, high-achieving, predominantly Asian American, Lowell High – a diverse group of seniors attempt to achieve the near impossible: admission to the college of their dreams. In a world where popularity is measured by the highest GPA, and immigrant dreams mix with persistent parental pressure, will their hard work pay off? Try Harder! follows the ups and downs of a student journey that gives an intimate window into what teens on the cusp of young adulthood face today.
