"For Ahkeem" is an award-winning documentary that tells the story of a 17-year-old North St. Louis girl set against the backdrop of the Ferguson protests. Women's Voices is pleased to partner with Vision for Children at Risk and Eliot Unitarian Chapel to show this important film.
Jeff Truesdell, executive producer of "For Ahkeem," will introduce the film and lead a discussion following the showing. This will be a unique opportunity to learn about how this unscripted documentary was produced and the implications of the film for all those who were involved in it.
People Magazine describes the film as a "deeply moving personal tale of one young student as she experiences loss, love and dreams that never fade." The Los Angeles Times says it is "a bracing story of grit in a world of social injustice."
