“BEST KEPT SECRET” - Help Get This Important Film Made!

Tuesday, November 22, 2011
In January 2011, the Best Kept Secret crew began filming at JFK High school in Newark, NJ. They have spent 9 glorious months getting to know Ms. Mino and the boys in class and have found a heroine and a story far more compelling, inspiring, and heartbreaking than they ever could have imagined.

Now, they need your help to finish telling this remarkable story.

BEST KEPT SECRET is a window into the world of a Newark, NJ public school teacher and her students with autism. It follows her struggle to help secure her students’ futures during their final year of school before they turn 21, age out of the system, and are pushed out into the real world.
