PBS SoCal presents a pre-premiere screening event for the documentary film Finding Home: A Foster Youth Story.

As part of PBS SoCal’s social impact initiative to Foster Change, the documentary follows four young adults as they transition out of foster care and into adulthood.

The film shares the remarkable journeys of four foster youth preparing for independent lives as adults. Summer, 17 and transgender, yearns to be adopted. Glorianna, 19 and an artist, struggles to live on her own after spending years in a residential care facility. Jaloni and Kalonji, 18-year-old twins, grew up in poverty, but have become star athletes and scholars with the help of two loving adults.

The screening, open to the public, press and foster care stakeholders, is next Wednesday, October 17th from 7-9 pm at Downtown Independent Theatre, 251 S Main St, Los Angeles, CA 90021. A panel discussion will follow.

The film premieres November 1st at 8 p.m. on PBS SoCal 1 (KOCE), and across the country starting on Nov. 3rd.
