The United Way of Forsyth County and Aperture Cinema will be presenting a screening of the award winning film “Homeless” directed by Clay Hassler Sept. 13, 2018 at 6pm at Aperture Cinema. Hassler’s film masterfully portrays how roadblocks combine to make the crawl away from poverty painfully slow and precariously uncertain for homeless youth. Guests will enjoy concessions and a conversation with the film maker about the making of the film as well as a Q&A with panelists who are experts in serving those who experience homelessness.
Filmed in a local homeless shelter with people experiencing homelessness, HOMELESS tells the story of a teenage boy lost in the bleak routine of life in a shelter. He feels alone and anonymous in a seemingly connected world. But when his circumstances change for the better, he finds himself adapting to a new home, new friends and looking forward to a future that he hopes will last.

HOMELESS is a narrative feature film written and created by a group of friends and shot over the span of 25 days. Working on a shoe string budget, the cast and crew shot across the city of Winston-Salem, NC, including two days at Randolph County Correctional Center in Asheboro, NC. The team spent a week at the Samaritan Inn homeless shelter, working and filming alongside the staff and residents as blocking had to be done in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a shelter working at full capacity in the cold winter months. The film was directed and produced by husband and wife team, Clay and Tif Hassler in association with their motion picture production company, Wet Paint.
