The Oxford Film Festival Monday Movies series continues at Burns Belfry Center on Aug. 27 at 630 pm with All the Difference.
The largely invisible and often crushing struggles of young African-American men come vividly — and heroically — to life in All the Difference, which traces the paths of two teens from the South Side of Chicago who dream of graduating from college. Statistics predict that Robert and Krishaun will drop out of high school, but they have other plans. Oscar®-nominated producer/director Tod Lending's intimate film, executive produced by author Wes Moore, follows the young men through five years of hard work, sacrifice, setbacks and uncertainty. As they discover, support from family, teachers and mentors makes all the difference in defying the odds.
The event is free due to the generous support of Mississippi Humanities Council and PBS POV Series but tickets are available to secure a seat at oxfordfilmfest.com.
