Filmmakers Clay and Tif Hassler based their film on a true story of a homeless teenager they met in Winston-Salem. The film was shot at Samaritan’s old building during the summer of 2012. The film has been praised for its realism, sensitivity and ability to take you into the world of poverty and homelessness. A discussion led by Samaritan’s Executive Director, Sonjia Kurosky, will follow the film. You can read more and buy tickets here.
