POV Series with Community Conversations: "All the Difference"
Event Type: Adult Program Age Group(s): Adults, Teens middle & high school Date: 1/6/2018 Start Time: 11:00 AM End Time: 1:30 PM
Please join us for a series of POV documentary screenings, to be followed by panel discussions and community conversations facilitated by Window Seat Media and the Lacey Timberland Library. Our first film is "All the Difference" by Tod Lending and Joy Thomas Moore and Wes Moore. The largely invisible and often crushing struggles of young African-American men come vividly — and heroically — to life in All the Difference, which traces the paths of two teens from the South Side of Chicago who dream of graduating from college. Statistics predict that Robert and Krishaun will drop out of high school, but they have other plans. Oscar®-nominated producer/director Tod Lending's intimate film, executive produced by author Wes Moore, follows the young men through five years of hard work, sacrifice, setbacks and uncertainty. As they discover, support from family, teachers and mentors makes all the difference in defying the odds. A co-production of American Documentary | POV; Part of American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen, made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
