THE BACKYARD PHILLY PROJECT explores the lives of four teens growing up in the Philadelphia inner-city neighborhood known as Penn Town. Shot partially by the teens themselves, this documentary gives an insightful look at life amidst city housing units where scenes of violence, poverty, friendship, and inspiration are edited together. Including a spotlight on the Helping Hands Rescue Mission, the film reveals the necessity of support, encouragement, and a positive environment for young people in the city. 


Director Amanda Danziger is a graduate of Philadelphia’s Drexel University. The film is inspired by former Kixx Player Adam Bruckner, now a Philadelphia resident and after school program director. 

This is a preview screening of a first cut of the film. Audience questions and feedback are requested and appreciated.See More
