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 University Church in Chicago website.
