    Boomerang Productions Media’s Tim Warren and Kelli Joan Bennett and director Vicki Abeles have joined forces for a grassroots screening campaign on behalf of Warren and Bennett’s documentary “High School 9-1-1.”

    Directed by Warren, “High School 9-1-1” depicts a year with Darien EMS-Post 53 — the only emergency medical ambulance service for the 20,000 residents of Darien, Conn. — as it covers a deadly stretch of highway, responds to over 1,500 emergency calls, and is run by high school teenagers.

    Adopting the approach begun with “Race to Nowhere,” Boomerang and Abeles will implement a community and school screening campaign for the film launching in June. The screening events — in schools, churches and community centers across the U.S. and abroad — will be specifically designed to highlight the vast potential of young people and how they can be utilized to fulfill vital needs within any community.

    “High School 9-1-1” grew out of Warren’s personal experience as a member of Darien EMS-Post 53, serving as an EMT and emergency ambulance driver at the age of 16 as well as the organization’s VP of Operations his senior year in high school.

    “When I first saw ‘High School 9-1-1,’ I was moved by the capability and work ethic of the kids running Post 53, and by the trust given them by their school, families, and greater community,” Abeles said. “‘High School 9-1-1’ tells the story of what’s possible when we give students opportunities to do real, meaningful and collaborative work in their communities.
