FFI recently hosted a special screening in Boston of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival award-winning documentary Rich Hill. Organizations that are part of the Greater Boston Full Frame Network joined policymakers, philanthropists, and other FFI allies to watch this powerful film that focuses on three boys and their families in the small town of Rich Hill, MO. While not shying away from the challenges these boys face, the film is “full frame” in its perspective that beautifully illuminates the protagonists’ strengths, hopes, dreams and, above all, their love for their families. The screening was followed by a robust discussion with filmmaker Tracy Tragos about issues that matter to all of us: poverty, violence, trauma, and the power of hope. Attendees left the event with new connections and inspiration to find ways to use this film in other venues to open dialog about how to see families who are accessing services in a different light. Look for a screening coming to your area and let FFI know if you have ideas on how to use this film for change! FFI would like to thank Tracy Tragos for joining us and The Boston Foundation for providing space for the event.
