Hulu will release Emmy Award–winning director/cinematographer Peter Nicks’ 2021 Sundance Film Festival official selection Homeroom. Homeroom is Peter Nicks’ final chapter in a trilogy of films examining the relationship between health care, criminal justice, and education in Oakland, CA over the past decade. Hulu also has the U.S. streaming rights to The Waiting Room(2012) and The Force (2017) so audiences can experience all three projects of this groundbreaking trilogy together.

Oakland High School’s class of 2020 confronts an unprecedented year. Anxiety over test scores and college applications gives way to uncertainty springing from a rapidly developing pandemic. Efforts to eliminate the school district’s police force unfold against the backdrop of growing nationwide demands for systemic change.

The film premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival where editors Kristina Motwani and Rebecca Adorno won the new Sundance Joshua Oppenheim Editing Award, U.S. Documentary. Hulu Original Documentary Homeroom and the entirety of Nicks’ trilogy will launch later this year.
