New Documentary Film Explores Youth Homelessness in Invisible Young

Share Article

Differential Films presents Invisible Young, a documentary that tells the story of four young adults who were all homeless as teenagers in Seattle, Washington. It is a heartbreaking and uplifting tale that provides a look into an often misunderstood segment of our society. http://www.invisibleyoung.com.

I started doing a film about homelessness, but I really ended up doing a film about the resilience of the human spirit.

Documentary filmmaker Steve Keller began to ask himself the question, "How is it that in a wealthy city like Seattle, a child of thirteen can end up on the streets, panhandling for spare change and sleeping in a doorway?" Seeking answers to this question led him on a personal journey taking well over a year, as he decided to produce a documentary film that looks into the subject of Youth Homelessness.

Invisible Young, now in production and with an expected release in the first half of 2012, offers an unofficial follow-up to the 1884 Academy Award nominated film Streetwise. Like Streetwise, Invisible Young examines youth homelessness from the inside out.

"The four main characters in the film tell personal stories that will shock and inspire," says Steve. "I started doing a film about homelessness, but I really ended up doing a film about the resilience of the human spirit."

Company information: Differential Film's owner, Steve Keller, has produced and directed several documentary film projects, including the 1998 film Project Censored seen on over 200 PBS stations nationwide.
