DAVIS– Film Screening: Part 2 of the “I Am Your Neighbor: A Tale of Two Cities” Documentary Film Series
November 4, 2017 @ 7:00 am – 10:00 amFree
DAVIS– Join Yolo County Library for our screening of the films Inocente and When I Came Home, in part two of our film series in which we humanize the homeless experience by sharing stories through documentary films.
Inocente is a personal and vibrant coming of age story about a young artist’s determination never to surrender to the bleakness of her surroundings, despite living homeless for nine years. When I Came Home follows the struggles of an Iraq war veteran who becomes homeless in New York City after returning from combat with post-traumatic stress disorder. A panel discussion about homelessness and the cycle of poverty will be held between the two films. Free refreshments will be available. No registration is required. The event is free and open to the public.
Attendees are invited to participate in a donation drive for the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter. Art from the YoloArts I SEE YOU program, which is created by adults who are experiencing homelessness, will be on display and available for sale, with proceeds directly benefiting the respective artists.
