A child recounts her family’s hard times. A couple ponders buying a foreclosed home. Families describe shelter living. A Marysville teen raps about homelessness.
Four animated stories inspired by local families:
• The Smiths, Neely Goniodsky – A family falls into homelessness before moving out of it with help from a supportive community.
• Home for Sale, Laura Jean Cronin – Prospective homebuyers see glimpses of the family who lived in the foreclosed home they’re touring.
• Super Dads, Sihanouk Mariona – Homeless dads and their children compare their perspectives.
• The Beast Inside, Amy Enser & Drew Christie – A young man deals with both homelessness and the teen years.
Includes a Q&A moderated by Tom Tangney, KIRO Radio, and post-film reception. Films were created through Seattle University’s Film & Family Homelessness Project, funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
