Boston College Graduate School of Social Work will host the U.S. premiere of a special documentary film, "Quando a casa é a rua (When Home Is the Street)." Award-winning Brazilian filmmaker Thereza Jessouroun chronicles the lives of street children in Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City, and brings to life stories of the street children's resilience and transformation through the power of compassion and support. While the film focuses on Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City, the compelling and haunting scenes depicted could also take place in Mumbai or Nairobi – or even in Boston or New York City.
The 35-minute screening will be followed by a discussion with Irene Rizzini, Professor of Social Work at the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro and founding director of the International Center for Research and Policy on Children. Professor Rizzini envisioned and developed this film project, which was funded through the Fetzer Institute. Stephanie Berzin, Boston College GSSW Associate Professor and chair of the Children, Youth & Families concentration, will moderate the film discussion. A reception will follow.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.
