MNS - "Congratulations, You're On Your Own: Life After Foster Care" Screening and Alumni Filmmaker Q&A


SFTV alumni and Director/Producer Michael Nes and Producer Aaron Lee Dowell return to LMU with their new PBS documentary Congratulations, You’re On Your Own - an intimate look at the lives of young adults who have recently “aged out” of the foster care system.  This insightful and moving film tells the stories of these young people in their own words as they are thrust out into the world to make it on their own - whether they are ready for it or not. They are forced to navigate all of the responsibilities of adulthood, many without having sufficient preparation. Despite these hardships, we find stories of incredible resiliency and extraordinary hope.
