Meet Scott Hamilton Kennedy & Catherine Borek: Creating Cinema that Honors the Human Spirit
July 29, 2015 Written by admin Meet Scott Hamilton Kennedy & Catherine Borek: Creating Cinema that Honors the Human Spirit Meeting Catherine Borek at a party in 1998 was a signature moment for Filmmaker Scott Hamilton Kennedy. "I was completely captivated", he says. Borek, an English teacher at Compton's Dominguez High School, and Kennedy share a love for theater and the moment changed the direction of the filmmaker's career almost immediately. "Prior to meeting Catherine my focus was primarily on music videos, including several number one internationally-aired videos including Jimmy Cliff's remake of I Can See Clearly Now. As a director, Scott also directed work for Showtime, CBS, AMC, Roger Corman and Mattel. "That all changed when I met Catherine", the director confesses. Catherine had taken the formidable task of creating a drama department at Dominguez High, better known for its athletic teams than its academic achievement (the school ranks in the lowest possible test scores compared to other high schools), and hadnt produced a school play in over 20 years. In 2002, in collaboration with Borek, Kennedy produced the critically acclaimed film OT: Our Town which was nominated for best documentary feature by the Independent Spirit Awards (2003).

Ms. Catherine Borek Teacher and Director of the Play
With no budget and no stage, Ms. Borek chooses "Our Town" for its universal and timeless themes of community, family, love and loss, life and death, with the hope that her students might see themselves reflected in the roles they play. The student actors have a hard time relating to the material at first, due to the striking differences in time, place, and ethnicity. But Ms. Borek, and her co-director Ms. Karen Greene, motivate them to update "Our Town" and make it relevant to their friends and family, who they hope will attend the performance. Director Scott Hamilton Kennedy first met Catherine Borek at a party in Los Angeles in 1998. When Catherine and co-director Karen Greene showed it to the kids, they became even more resistant to the notion that an all-white town of a century ago had anything to do with Compton in 2000. At that point, Catherine and Ms. Greene with the students to modernize the play, to bring more of themselves and Compton to Grover's Corners. Catherine Borek - Teacher/Director - began teaching at Dominguez High School when she was assigned a two-year commitment there by Teach for America in 1996. Seven years later, she is still in love with her job and would not think of leaving. Following "Our Town," Catherine has put on a play with her students every year - "Stand and Deliver" (2001), "The Outsiders" 2002), and "Inherit The Wind" (2003). "I'll probably go into teaching like Borek, which I think is a wonderful thing to do with my life."
