If you’re anywhere near Beloit this weekend, come out to the Beloit Film Festival for the premiere of Sixteen Forty-Nine. This documentary by Ruben Burgos highlights the issue of homeless teens in Rock County, and my wife Ann — who’s the homeless student liaison for the School District of Janesville — is interviewed about the situation in the film. It will show twice during the festival:
- February 18 at 7:30 PM, at the Eclipse Center in Beloit
- February 20 at 2:00 PM, at the Pontiac Convention Center in Janesville
Tickets for both shows are on sale now. Here’s the trailer for the film here to give you a sample of what it’s all about.
