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

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
