Director's statement

This program presents a combination of documentaries and narratives that tackle the experiences found in the overlap between sexuality, homelessness, mental health, disability, and cultural context. They are the stories of the homes we seek with others, the homes we make, and the healing we nurture in the communities that nurture us. The program opens with a striking portrayal of Hawai’i’s staggering youth homelessness problem that is performed by a cast of primarily homeless first-time actors, an honest look at the additional challenges Latino parents must overcome to communicate with their deaf children, and the compassionate and complex true story of a young woman battling trauma and addiction to inspire the next generation. It concludes with a film that lingers in both its brutal reality and ethereal sense of hope in the intersection of a hearing impaired homeless woman and an artist.
