The Foster Care Film and Community Engagement Project (FCFCEP) and City Living NY invite you to a special free screening to celebrate the PBS premiere of Absence/Presence, a documentary short film that highlights the stories of youth growing up in the foster care system.

October 10th is World Mental Health Day. In the spirit of this year’s theme, Celebrating the Power of Community Kindness, join us for a FREE screening of Absence/Presence, a half-hour documentary film which celebrates foster youth, showing how school, extended-family and the kindness of strangers can help a child find their path in life.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film participants and representatives from our partner organizations as well as a preview of the trailer for our upcoming feature-length documentary, Together. Stick around after for drinks and conversation in the attached bar!
