If You Break The Skin, You Must Come In Screening
At the 2007 First Person Festival
First Person Stage
2111 Sansom Street
Wed November 7th, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
The documentary If You Break the Skin, You Must Come In does more than just scratch the surface of the lives it examines. When a group of adolescents in foster care were chosen to make a film about maverick photographer Zoe Strauss, the process turned inside out by having them turn the camera on themselves. The result is a sobering, but ultimately uplifting, look at using art to find joy and magic in the world that surrounds us. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Strauss, the director David Kessler and the young filmmakers; one of whom, Charday Laverty, also curated a show of her photographs that will be on exhibit throughout the festival.
PLUS, a the panel discussion following the film will be awesome.
$10 (It's totally worth it)
