Challenger: Voices from the Street is a new documentary about The Challenger Street Newspaper in Austin Texas, a newspaper written, produced, and distributed by a group of Austin’s homeless as a way to get off the streets and have a voice in the community.
This documentary debuted at SXSW Film Festival this year and this will be the only public screening of the documentary before it ‘hits the film festival circuit’ to quote the director. The documentary focuses on the Challenger group but covers broader issues concerning homelessness.
Film director Gregg Baethge, will be present for a Q&A following the screening of their films. Light refreshments will also be served.
