SUWANEE - The second half of the 2012-13 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers returns to Suwanee and Movie Tavern with a screening of TRUST: Second Acts in Young Lives at 7 p.m. Monday, February 18.<br />
Tickets may be purchased for $6 each at Movie Tavern or online at www.movietavern.com and include an opportunity to engage in discussion with the filmmaker, Nancy Kelly.<br />
Part of Kelly's award-winning trilogy on the transformative power of art, TRUST: Second Acts in Young Lives, follows members of Chicago's Albany Park Theater Project as they transform the traumatic story of an 18-year-old Honduran immigrant into an original play. TRUST is about creativity and the unexpected resources inside young people, who may be discounted because of their youth, race, or ethnicity.<br />
The film received the Jury Award from the Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival, the Youth Vision Award from the United Nations Association Film Festival, and Best Documentary Award from the Reel Rasquache Art & Film Festival.<br />
Parental note: Although TRUST is about youth, the subject matter includes adult topics; this film may not be appropriate for children.<br />
Two additional films will be shown through the film circuit: The Misadventures of the Dunderheads on March 18 and Heart of Stone on April 15.
