Tonight: The new movie about Harlem Success is at the Apollo

“The Lottery,” a new documentary that follows four very lovable applicants to Harlem Success’s charter schools, is playing tonight at the Apollo in a free screening.

The documentary is one of two new films whose wide release charter school supporters are eagerly awaiting as a way to get their message out to the general public. (The other is “Inconvenient Truth” director Davis Guggenheim’s documentary, “Waiting for Superman.”)

After tonight’s screening, a panel including Chancellor Joel Klein and a district principal — both of whom appear in the film, saying positive things about charter schools — will discuss the film.

Here’s the info.
