documentary – ‘first generation’ – tough path to college

The college admissions process can be confusing on its own, but the missteps are multiplied, it seems, when a young applicant looks around and can find no relatives who’ve ever been through it.

In the documentary “First Generation,” which had its New York City premiere at New York University on Wednesday night,  four such teenagers forge their way to become the first in their families to go to college. The film, narrated byBlair Underwood, chronicles the actions and anxieties of these diverse students, all living in California, from their junior year, when the college admissions process begins in presumptive earnest, until they are freshmen in college.
