Students from Montgomery have completed a video on teen dating violence for the Girls! Camera! Action! Youth Violence Prevention Program, a Linda Vista based non-profit project with the mission to prevent teen dating violence for at-risk girls ages 12 to18 through a Social and Film program.

The short film was produced by 10 female students and is a clay and paper-cut stop motion animated short about "How to Break the Cycle of Emotional and Verbal Abuse."

The film recently had its debut at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park.

The video was part of a program by the Girls! Camera! Action! Youth Violence Prevention Project for at- risk-girls between the ages of 12 and 15. The girls learned about how to prevent and safely end abusive relationships, understand their legal rights and responsibilities, and create a framework for building healthy relationships in the future.

The Girls! Camera! Action! project includes Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA), Montgomery Middle School; Break the Cycle (BTC), and Civic Light Project (CLP). This is fiscal sponsor project by the San Diego Asian Film Foundation. This program was made possible by the Boys and Girls Foundation, Sponsorships, Corporate Match Gifts and Individual Giving.
