What They Think We Are

by Nick Malakhow

directed by Andrea Humez

At Dunston-Hall Academy, Raymond, a returning junior, and Sasha, a new sophomore, meet and bond over being two of the "scholarship kids" at a mostly white boarding school, the stupid stuff their white hallmates say, feeling like fish out of water both at home and at DHA, and their passions for music and art. Their growing friendship is tested, however, when they must navigate a series of personal tragedies, uncomfortable revelations, and betrayals as the fall semester unfolds.

Please note: What They Think We Are includes discussion of sexual assault.
