Homelessness is, and is not, what you think. This series of poignant short films, created by local young adults transitioning from struggle to hope and self-sufficiency, uses personal experience to reveal some of the causes and possible solutions to this important problem in our community. The youth are participants in the School of Film’s Project Viewfinder, now in its second year, which partners with area community organizations to teach the tools of filmmaking to disadvantaged populations. Join us for this uplifting testimony to the power of filmmaking to change young lives, and for film to spark a collective sense of community compassion. Thanks to New Avenues for Youth, Outside In, p:ear, SMYRC, BCCTV and the Wheeler Foundation for helping to make this project possible.
