LA Film Fest Pick: STREETERS

Working with a budget of $11,000, director Samantha Highsmith has crafted a skillful and moving documentary illuminating the plight of homeless youth in downtown Salt Lake City.  While it’s fair to say that Highsmith’s 21 min film captures its subjects at a low ebb, their dogged determination to improve their station and the genuine sense of community they’ve fostered with their fellow “streeters” imbue the film with a hopeful tone.  Screening at the Regal Cinemas at LA Live as part of Future Filmmaker Showcase program 1, Saturday, June 25th at 3:50 pm.
