Depaul USA presents Homeless Has a Name, its inaugural film festival focusing on the hardships of the homeless, on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 8 p.m. The screenings will take place at the Painted Bride Art Center, 230 Vine Street, Philadelphia, Pa. Tickets are free at the door.
Nineteen short films produced across the United States and the United Kingdom were submitted for selection. Eight were chosen for inclusion in the festival, including Clear Enough to See, a short film produced and edited by JoLynne Holloman Bremmer ’10 in 2010 as part of her Senior Thesis. After all the films are screened, a panel of experts will examine the topics covered to help dispel stereotypes surrounding those without permanent shelter.
“The Artist in the Community,” a University Seminar course led by Adjunct Professor Linda Ruth Paskell ’81, ’96M.Ed., has worked extensively Depaul House, assisting with renovations and collaborating artistically with residents.
