Event Description

Poverty is a painful reality for many Philadelphians. Recent PEW research shows that over one out of every four residents of Philadelphia live in poverty - the second highest of the U.S.’s twenty-five largest cities. The cycle of poverty, addiction and violence is one that plagues many neighborhoods, like Penn Town, the focus of "The Backyard Philly Project" and four teens who struggle to break free of its grip.

Ferasha Films, founded by Westphal Graduate Amanda Danziger (one of Drexel Magazine's "Forty Under Forty") will host the world premiere of their new documentary, "The Backyard Philly Project," at the Drexel University URBN Center Annex on May 11. Tickets are still available for the Press Screening event on May 10, beginning at 7 p.m. Visit www.ferashafilms.com for more information.
