Description

Screening of the feature documentary MIGHTY GROUND followed by a performance by its Star RONALD TROY COLLINS and Urban Renewal Project - outdoors on the lawn at Playa Vista Central Park.

All proceeds benefit HomeAid Los Angeles and Mighty Ground. $15.00 ticket donation requested per person. Food trucks will be available at the park. Be sure to bring chairs, blankets and jackets for this one-of-a-kind evening in honor of Homeless Awareness Month.

There are more than 57,000 homeless people in Los Angeles; MIGHTY GROUND (www.mightyground.com) is the story of one of them. In the film, Ronald Troy Collins makes his way through the days by singing to people on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. As with most of the homeless, Ronald is nearly invisible to the majority of passers-by. But those who stop to listen find themselves captivated by the depth of his prophetic voice, and by the mystical songs he composes on the spot and directs at the listener’s soul.

Enchanted, these listeners find themselves making a deep and unfathomable connection with Ronald that crosses racial and economic lines. This is exactly what happened to producer Aimee Schoof in January of 2016. What began as a random encounter on a downtown LA street quickly turned into a tale of vitality, heartbreak and ultimately, redemption for all involved.

Mature audience due to drug material and pervasive language.
