Center Aisle Cinema: "All the Difference"
Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

The often crushing yet invisible struggles of young African-American men come vividly — and heroically — to life in this month's documentary feature "All the Difference," which traces the paths of two teens from the South Side of Chicago who dared to dream a seemingly impossible dream: to graduate from college. Oscar-nominated producer/director Tod Lending's intimate film, executive produced by author Wes Moore, follows the young men through five years of hard work, sacrifice, setbacks and uncertainty. Shown in collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series (www.pbs.org/pov). Watch the trailer at www.dbrl.org/films. (2016, not rated, 83 minutes) Adults and teens.
