A homeless teen and a businessman dying in an alley; their only hope is each other in “Street Language.”

Stories are how we share our deeper feelings, fears, and hopes. Through powerful stories we are able to experience and express and engage the deeper issues that affect our lives and our communities.

Street Language is a short film resource that will be a catalyst for conversations and engagement. The story speaks to issues of homelessness, lonliness, poverty, mental health, and community. We are producing the film in partnership with Epicenter Pictures, another non-profit involved in mentoring students to effect change in their world through filmmaking.

Here’s a quick synopsis:

Jacob lives an unseen life in the midst of the crowded city. When he stumbles upon Michael, bleeding in an alley, he must decide whether he can take the risk to help. In this moving short film story, a teenage street kid finds the strength to open up his life after a wounded stranger opens his eyes to the possibility of love and beauty around him. Their journey together opens up both of their lives to the possibility of love and hope for the future.

Much more than merely another short film, Street Language is a collaborative mentoring project where we have built a team of professionals and student filmmakers who are working together to create a high-quality piece of cinema. And, we are telling the story through multiple media channels: film, internet, & social media. The goal is to bring a deep, compelling story to audiences and enable viewers to engage in making real-world change in their own cities.

We have a growing number of non-profit organizations who work in urban Denver on-board with us as partners to help bring the story to diverse audiences. Viewers may be at-risk teens, hospice volunteers, or suburban families who want to make a difference in their cities. We are working with our partners to develop study guides and resource links for groups who want to learn and engage.
