25 Apr San Diego International Film Festival Explores Homelessness
“The San Diego Film Foundation, best known for putting on the San Diego Film Festival, will present special screenings of Storied Streets at five area schools.
Documentarian Jack Henry Robbins’s Storied Streets explores homelessness through the eyes of those who live it every day. According to SDFF’s Susan Clausen, the goal of the Focus on Impact Film Tour is “to provide teens with a basic understanding of social justice, a personal connection to homelessness and an awareness of how they can encourage change and empathy within their own community.”
When my partner Thomas Morgan was able to broker this kind of idea by starting the Social Justice Initiative, it made us so excited. It’s another way for people to find these very special films, and hopefully be moved to do anything, from righting a wrong, or giving information, or asking more questions, or starting dialogues about something...that’s how change starts, with information. - Susan Sarandon
