Screen a powerful student film on how ‘hope works’ in Camden

A group of Villanova film students spent five weeks shooting and talking to the folks at HopeWorks, a Camden youth development organization. The nonprofit trains underserved or neglected youth in web development, GIS and Salesforce to prep them for professional careers, but also ends up helping with just about every aspect of their lives. The resulting movie premieres tonight, followed by a Q&A with cast and crew.

Where: Villanova University Connelly Center at 800 E. Lancaster Ave., Villanova 19085

When: May 6, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
