Event

The Homestretch
Saturday, November 22nd - Wednesday, November 26th, 7:30pm and Wednesday, November 26th at 4:30pm

The Homestretch

Anne de Mare and Kristen Kelly, 2014, 89 min.

The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate,
and build a future. Each of these smart, ambitious teenagers - Roque, Kasey and
Anthony - will surprise, inspire, and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of
homelessness as they work to complete their education while facing the trauma of
being alone and abandoned at an early age. Through haunting images, intimate
scenes, and first-person narratives, these teens take us on their journeys of struggle
and triumph. As their stories unfold, the film connects us deeply with larger issues
of poverty, race, juvenile justice, immigration, foster care, and LGBTQ rights.

With unprecedented access into the Chicago Public Schools, The Night Ministry's Crib
emergency youth shelter and Teen Living Programs' Belfort House, The
Homestretch follows these kids as they move through the milestones of high school
while navigating a landscape of couch hopping, emergency shelters, transitional
homes, street families and a school system on the front lines of this crisis. The film, a
co production between Spargel Productions and Kartemquin Films, examines
the struggles these youth face in obtaining a high school level education, and
then follows them beyond graduation to focus on the crucial transition when the
structure of school vanishes and homeless youth struggle to find the support and
community they need to survive and be independent. A powerful, original perspective
on what it means to be young, homeless and building a future in America today.

The screening on Saturday, 11/22 at 7:30pm will be sponsored by the True Colors Fund and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

The screening on Sunday, 11/23 at 7:30pm will be sponsored by the Door and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

The screening on Monday, 11/24 at 7:30pm will be sponsored by Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS) and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and representatives of GEMS.
