    Amazing things unfold as the young members of Chicago’s Albany Park Theater Project transform the traumatic story of 18-year-old Honduran immigrant Marlin into a daring, original play. TRUST: Second Acts in Young Lives is about creativity and the unexpected resources inside youths, who may be discounted because of their youth, race or ethnicity, or because they come from under-resourced neighborhoods without access to arts programs. TRUST received the Jury Award from the Sebastopol
    Documentary Film Festival, the Youth Vision Award from the United Nations Association Film Festival and the Best Documentary Award from the Reel Rasquache Art & Film Festival.
    Join us after the movie for Q & A with the filmmaker and a reception!
    Veteran independent filmmaker Nancy Kelly made an award-winning documentary trilogy about the transformative power of art: TRUST: Second Acts in Young Lives, about a Honduran teen whose traumatic life story is unveiled in a daring original play; Smitten (PBS Prime Time Special), about art collector Rene di Rosa; and Downside Up (PBS Independent Lens series), about how America’s largest museum of contemporary art, MASS MoCA, revived Kelly’s dying home town. She also made the narrative feature Thousand Pieces of Gold (PBS American Playhouse series) starring Rosalind Chao and Chris Cooper. She has been a fellow at the Sundance Institute and a Bay Area Video Coalition Mediamaker. Her next documentary, Rebels with a Cause, premieres fall 2012.
