Bridge of Hope presents: STORIED STREETS
November 7, 2018
Join us on November 7 at the historic State Theatre in downtown State College as we present Storied Streets – a documentary film about homelessness in America.
Storied Streets explores homelessness across America by telling the stories of those who live it every day. The documentary film profiles homeless and formerly homeless and their struggle to survive. Their stories are real, raw, and compelling. The journey starts in L.A. and ends in New York, covering 13 cities across the country. It will provide a window into their struggles, question stereotypes and change the way you feel about those who are experiencing homelessness.
“The more people we talk to who know homelessness first hand – families, veterans, young adults – the more I realize that they live lives very similar to mine and yours. When I hear how they have come to find themselves homeless, I know we could all be just a few missteps away from finding ourselves in the same situation. And as they struggle to get out, the rest of society sees them as a nuisance or eye sore, if they even see them at all.” Thomas Morgan, Producer/Director
For more information on the making of the film, visit the L.A. Times here.
For those who wish to stay after the film, a panel of local experts on homelessness will take the stage to discuss homelessness and answer audience questions.
