The Appreciating Diversity Film Series proudly announces TWO showings of our next free film:
POOR KIDS, a film by Jezza Neumann, will be shown Sept. 26, 2013
at 7pm at the Ellen Driscoll Theater, 325 Highland Ave, Piedmont.
This moving documentary focuses on the children in three American families in the Quad Cities, a great American crossroads along the border of Iowa and Illinois. Told in the words of the children themselves, this one-hour documentary offers a unique perspective on America's depressed economy after the financial crisis of 2008, and the impact of unemployment, foreclosure and financial distress.
As Brittany, one of the children, says, "It could happen to you. It only takes one slip up, one thing to go wrong....And it might be nothing to do with you, nothing to do with the way you're leading your life. But even a natural disaster can take you down to ground zero". Winner of the Robert F Kennedy Award for Television Journalism 2013
