THE FILM

 

March Filmadelphia

THE BACKYARD PHILLY PROJECT
Directed by Amanda Danzinger / 2013 / 64 minutes

THE BACKYARD PHILLY PROJECT explores the lives of four teens growing up in the Philadelphia
inner-city neighborhood known as Penn Town.  Shot partially by the teens themselves, this documentary
gives an insightful look at life amidst city housing units where scenes of violence, poverty, friendship, and
inspiration are edited together.  Including a spotlight on the Helping Hands Rescue Mission, the film
reveals the necessity of support, encouragement, and a positive environment for young people in the city.

Director Amanda Danziger is a graduate of Philadelphia’s Drexel University. The film is inspired
by former Kixx Player Adam Bruckner, now a Philadelphia resident and after school program director.

This is a preview screening of a first cut of the film. Audience questions and feedback are requested and appreciated.
