FREE. The Next Movement, Chicago Filmmakers and Columbia College present: Art Connect. Columbia College, Hokin Hall. 600 S Michigan Ave. Chicago.
Art Connect vividly illustrates how creative intervention changed the lives of a group of young people in Laventille, a disenfranchised and volatile community in Trinidad & Tobago. The film documents the profound impact that painting, poetry, music, and dance had on the children, who were given digital cameras to record their experiences. By allowing the viewer intimate access to their world, they reveal their hopes and fears, and we witness their lives transform.
