Event Details

The Helen Bader Institute (HBI) for Nonprofit Management at the UW-Milwaukee is excited to announce its 2nd Annual HBI Summer Film Series, looking into all aspects of the world social sector and our place in this ever evolving landscape. This year we tackle topics that appear frequently in conversations about Milwaukee...food insecurity, gang violence, and urban redevelopment. Join us as we look into how other communities have addressed these issues, and consider how we might address these same concerns that hit so close to home.




From Executive Producer Russell Simmons and Director Jason Zeldes, comes an award-winning documentary following Donté Clark, a young poet transcending the violence in his hometown by writing about his experiences. Growing up in Richmond, CA, a city haunted by a fatal turf war, Donté and the like-minded youth of the city mount an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with the hope of starting a dialogue about violence in the city.

 

 
“The film offers a visceral portrait of a desperate community and the power of art to transform lives.”
-Andrew Travers, Aspen Times
