How about Madeline Ali's *Black to the Promised Land*? A documentary about
a Bed-Stuy teacher who takes a group of Bed-Stuy (ie inner-city,
African-American, NYC) high school students to live and work on a kibbutz?
It was screened at the SF Film Festival in 1992, as I recall and it
doesn't shy away from showing us what these kids are *really* thinking.
Interesting film.
