Description
 

Lubbock, Texas has an abstinence-only sex education policy in its schools and some of the highest teen pregnancy and STD infection rates in the nation. Shelby Knox is a Lubbock high school student, a good Baptist girl and the most outspoken advocate of sex education in town. The Education of Shelby Knox follows Shelby for three years as she grows into her own beliefs, which increasingly differ from those of her family, church, and community. Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt provide a fascinating look at a culture and issues that upon first look can only be seen in Blue and Red, but where with closer scrutiny the color lines begin to bleed. Shelby Knox received the Sundance Film Festival Award for Best Cinematography and the Audience Award at the SXSW Film Festival.
