Miles for Myles Student filmmaker Jessica Allossery has created a documentary â€” called "Miles for Myles" â€” about the boy, who died at age 10. "Apparently he was very artsy," Allossery said. "And he really liked peace ... he reminds me a lot about myself. "He liked animals, he liked to read, and he liked to travel." In 1998, Neuts was found hanging unconscious on a coat hook in a washroom stall at St. Agnes Catholic School. He later died of his injuries. Since then, the family have been advocates for child safety and anti-bullying. Allossery, 21, said Myle's father, Mike, spoke at her school when she was 10 years old. "It stuck with me my whole life," she said. "When he did that presentation, it changed me and I think it changed a lot of kids my age and made them think twice about bullying."
Oakland International High School in California produced a documentary about their school's unique role in helping immigrant and refugee students throughout Oakland get prepared for success in college and beyond. The students were teamed with Pam Uzzell, an established professional documentary filmmaker, and Chris Guevarra, an Oakland native and graduate of UCSC's film program, to learn video production and produce this short film. http://publicportal.ousd.k12.ca.us/199410821121951173/blank/browse.asp?a=383&BMDRN=2000&BCOB=0&c=57347
