The World's Best Prom
An American Rite of Passage...taken to Extreme!DVD - 2006
Once a year for over five decades, prom mania grips the entire population of Racine, Wisconsin. Prom-goers from seven city high schools converge on one citywide prom to make red carpet entrances bombarded by the flash of cameras and screams from bleachers filled to capacity. Across the city, residents keep their eyes glued to the live television coverage of the spectacular event. If the Academy Awards were moved to the heartland, this is what it would resemble. THE WORLD’S BEST PROM presents an all-access pass to this extraordinary event, documenting its history and the social significance it has to the community. The candid and remarkable stories of three teenagers from completely different backgrounds chronicle the emotionally charged days and nights leading up to their unbelievable prom night, while providing insight to a pivotal time in a teenager’s life as they inch closer to adulthood and face making decisions that will effect the rest of their lives. This celebratory film is for anyone who has ever wished they could relive prom night.
