EACH ONE TEACH ONE

Director/Editor


“…subtle and moving, ‘Each one Teach One’ is a reminder

of the hard, fast punch that short film can throw.”

-The Portland Mercury



Jason “Compa” Treas was recently released from solitary confinement in a maximum-security prison after spending over half of his life incarcerated.  While in prison he discovered his own talent as an artist and how art could be used as a powerful tool for transformation and empowerment.  Now released from prison, Jason works with youth in crisis doing mural projects in the hope of preventing them from following in his path. Each One Teach One is a film about art, self-redemption and the meaning of freedom.
