In the wake of the recession, a new film documents the stories of people across the country living at or below the poverty line. The Line, produced by MacArthur grantee Sojourners, comes from Emmy-Award winning writer and producer Linda Midgett. The documentary explores the emerging and entrenched faces of poverty, including an ex-banker who now relies on a food pantry, and an aging fisherman whose shrimp catching business has been devastated by the Gulf oil spill.

More information about the screening is available on The Line website.
