10:35 AM Dreamcatcher, dir. Kim Longinotto (98 mins)
LOCATION: Minneapolis Convention Center, Auditorium 2
“You got any dreams you wanna catch?” Sundance award winner “Dreamcatcher” takes us into a hidden world of prostitution and sexual trafficking through the eyes of one of its survivors, Brenda Myers-Powell. A former teenage prostitute with a drug habit, Brenda defied the odds to become a powerful advocate for change in her community, and works to help women and young girls break the cycle of sexual abuse and exploitation. DREAMCATCHER lays bare the hidden violence that devastates the lives of these young women, their families and the communities where they live in Chicago and Brenda’s unflinching intervention that turns these desperate lives around.
