Hawai’i Preparatory Academy will host a free public screening of the award-winning documentary “Most Likely to Succeed” on Wednesday, May 11.

The showing will take place at 6 p.m. in the Gates Performing Arts Center on the school’s Upper Campus.

Following the 90 minute viewing, the films executive producer, Ted Dintersmith, will converse with viewers.

“Most Likely to Succeed” has been called “the best film ever done on the topic of school.” The film aims to inspire its audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility, and bring school communities together in re-imagining what students and teachers are capable of doing.

Greg Whitely directed the film, which has been an official selection at two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, AFI, Cleveland, Dallas, Milwaukee, Sarasota, Seattle, Virginia, and Bergen.
