We are grateful for the people who came out to the June 9th premiere of @home at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago — what a place to have a premiere! There was not an open seat in the house, and we were overwhelmed by the kind, thoughtful, and constructive feedback we received after the lights came up.
As one audience member tweeted after the premiere, “Teary-eyed and sniffly after seeing the @home_campaign documentary. Thanks @hardlynormal for sharing your experiences.” Another wrote, “Just saw @home_campaign premiere. Any1 working in homelessness should see it - will renew passion for your work. Kudos @hardlynormal!”
After the screening, we hosted panel discussion and Q&A with Mark Horvath, director Susanne Suffredin, Chicago Alliance to End Homelessness CEO Nonie Brennan, and our Executive Director and co-producer Danny Alpert. The panelists were greeted with a standing ovation as they walked onto the stage, and proceeded to discuss the film and answer questions from the audience.
We are proud to put this project into the world, and we are grateful for the interest and support we have received from our supporters and friends. We hope you will continue to support our campaign — we’ll be in touch soon with more ways to get involved.
