Cultural Capital: Inocente—Screening & Conversation
Homeless. Creative. Unstoppable.
The Academy Award-winning film Inocente (42 min.) is an inspiring coming-of-age story of a 15-year-old girl in California. Though homeless and undocumented, she refuses to give up on her dreams to become an artist, proving that only her dreams define her.
The screening will kick off National Homeless Youth Awareness Month and be followed by a panel discussion on the efforts and policy being enacted to end youth homelessness in the District of Columbia. Panelists TBA.
Program followed by a reception.
This Cultural Capital program partnership is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative in collaboration with the DC Alliance of Youth Advocates (DCAYA), a coalition of over 100 youth-serving organizations working to ensure that all children and youth in District of Columbia have access to high-quality and affordable developmental opportunities.
