Sneak peek of documentary on youth homelessness at Chicago International Social Change Film Festival

In The Homestretch directors Anne de Mare and Kirsten Kelly explore urban homelessness amongst adolescents enrolled in the Chicago Public Schools. An estimated 15,000+ CPS students are homeless, with an estimated 1.6 million children nationwide "with no home and very limited adult support." The in-progress film is part of the opening night presentation of the Chicago International Social Change Film Festival on October 5th, 6:15pm at the Showplace Icon theater. The first ever public preview of The Homestretch will be followed by a Q & A with the filmmakers and Beth Cuningham of Chicago Coalition for the Homeless (Get tickets).
