It's Elementary takes cameras into classrooms  to look at one of today's most controversial issues - whether and how gay issues should be discussed in schools. Hailed as "a model of intelligent directing" by International Documentary Magazine, the film makes the case that all children are effected by anti-gay prejudice and that adults have a responsibility to address it. Showcasing teachers leading non-judgmental discussions with students about gay and lesbian people, the film demonstrates that students are eager to have honest conversations and learn about differences and respect.

An outstanding American independent documentary from the makers of the award-winning "LET'S GET REAL!".

"IT'S  ELEMENTARY is the most important film dealing with LGBT issues and safe schools ever made." - Kevin Jennings, founder and executive director, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.

"Smart, rewarding, enormously valuable..." - Los Angeles Times.
