My Life My Choice will be joining the Full Frame Initiative, along with other Boston-area nonprofit organizations, in a panel discussion following the premiere of the film Rich Hill at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge, MA.
Winner of award for Best Documentary at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Rich Hill explores the lives of three boys living in the impoverished American town of Rich Hill, Missouri. In towns such as Rich Hill, just getting by may often be considered as successful but these deprived young boys long for a brighter future filled with the same things we all want for ourselves: a nice, comfortable life in a nice home with good food and a happy, healthy family.
The event will be hosted by the Full Frame Initiative, a national nonprofit organization that seeks to break the cycles of poverty and violence. Members of My Life My Choice will e joined by Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, Hyde Square Task Force, Julie’s Family Learning Program, On the Rise, REACH, Western Massachusetts Training Consortium, and Youth on Fire. The panel discussion will cover the film, violence and poverty, and how to help people brought up and stuck in these institutions, as well as questions from the audience.
The film will begin at 7:30 pm with the discussion following at 9 pm. Tickets are available online and in person at the Brattle Theater box office for $10.
