Teenage Paparazzo Empowerment Tour

posted by Nell Minow

The Teenage Paparazzo Empowerment Tour is raising money to deliver messages about media and celebrity to high schools across the country.  Adrian Grenier (HBO’s Entourage) gets behind the camera to explore the concepts of celebrity and fame in today’s media saturated society. The documentary interviews scholars, celebrities, and paparazzo themselves in order to take an in-depth look at why and how people consume popular culture and are affected by media saturation and technology. The Empowerment Tour will bring together teachers, students, local media, guest speakers, and educators at high school campuses across the country. Schools get the opportunity to screen the film, engage in a live exhibit of art reflecting themes presented in the film, and engage in local media events. They are reaching 80 schools and 50,000+ students in a 6 month period, beginning in the fall of 2012.
