👫Impact Fund Spotlight👫🏾:
DUTY FREE (@dutyfreefilm)
After a 75 year-old immigrant mother gets fired from her job as a hotel housekeeper, her son takes her on a bucket-list adventure to reclaim her life. As she struggles to find work, he documents a journey that uncovers the betrayals plaguing her past and the economic insecurity shaping not only her future, but that of an entire generation.
With widespread unemployment, evictions upending the lives of millions, and a generation of elders at their most vulnerable, Duty Free gives a voice to the now. We believe deeply that the film team's impact and engagement plans will meet the moment and serve communities with resources, education and hope.
Congrats to @sianpierre and the other 5 filmmaking teams who will each be awarded $25k to fuel their impact and engagement efforts via our Impact Fund!
