Director Robyn Paterson and Terrance Wallace, founder of the InZone Project, share on the process of making their 2018 feature documentary In The Zone. The film follows Terrance’s journey to establish first a home for minority teens in New Zealand’s most sought after school zone, and then in his own community back in Chicago with political and racial tensions rising in the USA.
Throughout its powerful narrative, In The Zone raises poignant questions about education, privilege, diversity, and cycles of inequality across the Western world.
“You are pulling people together and having to get the trust and build the trust with people from really different walks of life, really different ends of the political spectrum, different ends of the socio-economic spectrum. For me, as a filmmaker, I think my biggest job was building those relationships.” – Robyn Paterson
