Pier Kids presented by Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020
November 19 @ 7:30 pm – November 22 @ 7:30 pm
For the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020, Houston Cinema Arts Society features virtual and drive-in screenings of films in addition to live stream performances, interactive experiences, and Q&A and panels. This year, HCAF celebrates “Urbana,” inspired by the globally popular Spanish-language genre música Urbana, which has its origin in African and the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
As a part of the Urbana section for the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020 (Nov 12 – Nov 22), Pier Kids, directed by Elegance Bratton, is available on the virtual platform for 3 days from November 19, 7:30 PM. This documentary film sheds light on the struggles faced by homeless queer black youth by following the life of Casper, Desean, and Krystal and illustrates the difficulties the youth find themselves in, as they try to search for stability and safety.
