From the p.r.:

The documentary If You Break the Skin, You Must Come In does more than just scratch the surface of the lives it examines. When a group of adolescents in foster care were chosen to help make a film about maverick photographer Zoe Strauss, the process was turned inside out by having them turn the camera on themselves. The result is a sobering, but ultimately uplifting, look at using art to find joy and magic in the world that surrounds us. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Strauss, the director David Kessler, and the young filmmakers; one of whom, Charday Laverty, also curated the show of Strauss’s photographs that will be on exhibit throughout the festival.

Hey this movie is an experience. Hope you get to see it!!! And meet those kids, too!!!
