I have so much love and gratitude for the 150 plus people who spent their evening opening their hearts to the Tenderloin. I'm humbled by the response the film received and thoroughly moved by the kind, compassionate, and honest conversations that were shared after the screening and panel. My favorite part of the night was sitting next to my good friend Corey Jackson, one of the subjects of the film, and the only one whose story was left unresolved by the end of the film (he was still living on the streets and using drugs when we stopped shooting). Last night he had the opportunity to share the next chapter of his story with a live audience, and let these 150 people know that he has been clean, sober, and off the streets for months now.
Again, thank you to everyone who made it out last night. Thanks to your presence and contributions to City Hope, we will feed over 300 neighbors in the Tenderloin dignified meals!
Thank you to @hellocovo for providing the perfect event space for the screening and to @Catchlight.io for being the most incredible promotional partner and helping design an experience that left people moved.
