“After Skid Row”, directed by our alumna Lindsey Hagen (USA), has Oscar qualified and is now streaming in the Academy screening room.
The 22-minute documentary was awarded by Independent Shorts Awards in August 2021.
“After Skid Row” documents the journey of Barbie Carter as she comes back to terms with her identity after living on the streets of Skid Row for the past 10 years.
The film illuminates the intimate humanity behind homelessness as Barbie rediscovers parts of her identity that she had been forced to stifle in order to survive. Her unique story and compelling character help to both demystify and deeply personalize a homelessness epidemic that continues to swell across the US.
