Documentary screening and panel discussion about poverty in America to be held at Neighborhood Theatre
A screening of the documentary "The Line" about poverty in America will be held at the Neighborhood Theatre in NoDa on Sunday, Oct. 28 at 7pm. A panel discussion will follow featuring local leaders concerned with poverty and affordable housing in Charlotte.
Poverty in America — It's not what you think.
"The Line" documents the stories of people across the country living at or below the poverty line. They have goals. They have children. They work hard. They are people like you and me. Across America, millions are struggling every day to make it above The Line.
This 45-minute film uncovers the emerging and entrenched faces of poverty in our country — such as the suburban former banker, who now relies on a food pantry; to an aging career fisherman, whose shrimping business has been devastated by the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast.
Join us for the Charlotte Premiere of this incredible film from Emmy-award winning writer and producer, Linda Midgett!
