Opening this weekend at the Ritz at the Bourse is “Pressure Cooker” a documentary filmed at Frankford High School. City Paper has a good review today. Also if you attend this weekend you can meet the film makers and subjects of the film.
There has been a lot of comment on the Wilma Stephenson manner in working with the kids in the film. I met her at Frankford a few months ago. The Frankford Business and Professional Association had a meeting at Frankford and had lunch prepared and served by the students of the Culinary Academy. Mrs Stevenson was no more demanding than my first sergeant in the air Force. She has standards and the students have to meet them. That is what we should expect from a good teacher.
