IRIC, 12min., USA, Documentary
Directed by Sandra Tamkin
A homeless young man struggles to find his place in the world and make sense of a traumatic childhood.
"We made the film to elicit compassion and build understanding about the people in our communities facing homelessness. Film festival screenings provide an opportunity for people to get a peek into a life and a world that is increasingly divisive in social and political terms. Stories like Iric's need to be communicated and shared because they aren't sufficiently heard. Film allows people to meet each other who would not otherwise [interact]. I want audiences to take the time to get to know Iric's perspective and experience better. His voice gives us insight and can be used as a tool for social change." — Sandra Tamkin, Producer, Director and Founder of Tudor Drive Productions.
