"All The Difference" Film Screening and Q&A with Filmmaker

Monday, December 12, 2016 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm

Filmmaker Tod Lending introduces and screens his documentary film "All The Difference." Filmed over five and a half years, "All The Difference" weaves together the stories of two tough, yet promising young black men as they navigate their lives in low-income, high-risk communities in Chicago. Statistics predict they will drop out of high school and succumb to life on the streets; but both graduate and go on to college in spite of all the odds. The film explores the factors in their lives (education, parents and grandparents, teachers, role models, personal drive and community support) that made All The Difference in helping them be the first in their families to most likely escape poverty and secure a place in the middle class. A question and answer session with the filmmaker follows the screening.
