The Gene Siskel Film Center presents an exclusive showing of The Homestretch, a film about three homeless teenagers in Chicago on their adventure to create a future for themselves after a lifetime of rejection. The filmmakers follow Roque, an aspiring actor, poet/painter Kasey, and rapper/ entrepreneur Anthony through the city to find what they’re searching for as individuals. As the three constantly fight to stay alive on the streets and defy the odds, this film also highlights multiple issues regarding race, justice, immigration, foster care and LGBTQ rights.
The Homestretch is being featured at The Gene Siskel Film Center, a program of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, located at 164 N. State Street in Chicago.
Showtimes can be viewed here, and tickets for the film can be purchased here.
