    Roughly twelve years ago filmmaker Pablo Miralles created a short video for the Class of 1981 Reunion at John Muir High School in Pasadena (where he is also an alum). The impetus was a note from a man extolling the past virtues of school and community integration where his generation knew firsthand that understanding, harmony, friendship and love can blossom among people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds.

    After positive feedback from alumni from the 50s through the 90s who saw the reunion video, he began research into the resegregation of previously integrated school districts and discovered a trend impacting communities throughout the nation.

    The documentary film CAN WE ALL GET ALONG is the product of Miralles’ understanding of the history of John Muir High School — that it’s alumni, teachers, administrators and parents and their belief in the promise of a diverse and excellent public education are important stories to share for the present and future of his community and for our country at large.
