Better is a nonfiction, documentary short focusing on the opportunity for one small town to finally embrace its diversity. Boulder County Colorado has a reputation for being one of the healthiest, most active, educated, and wealthy communities in America. But this is only half the story. There are families struggling with poverty, teenagers who are victims of bullying, and immigrants who are harassed and discriminated against. Better tells that story through the voices of the individuals living on the margins of society. Within their stories arises an opportunity for Boulder County to embrace its diversity and to be better - for all of us.
Better is a community collaboration by Boulder and for Boulder. This film was produced in partnership with Boulder County Community Services.
