THE BACKYARD PHILLY PROJECT
First Cut Preview Screening
Directed by Amanda Danzinger / 2013 / 64 minutes
THE BACKYARD PHILLY PROJECT explores the lives of four teens growing up in the Philadelphia inner-city neighborhood known as Penn Town. Shot partially by the teens themselves, this documentary gives an insightful look at life amidst city housing units where scenes of violence, poverty, friendship, and inspiration are edited together. Including a spotlight on the Helping Hands Rescue Mission, the film reveals the necessity of support, encouragement, and a positive environment for young people in the city.
This screening is a preview screening of the first cut of the film. Audience questions and feedback are requested and appreciated.
Tickets are free but required.
