We’re thrilled to announce that the #RealCollege community is invited to join the Hope Center for a special screening and social media conversations about Hungry to Learn, Soledad O’Brien’s new documentary. Our #RealCollege movement and conference are prominently featured. The film has been featured at prestigious film festivals including SXSW EDU, DOC NYC Film Festival and the Garden State Film Festival.
About the Film:
The cost of college is forcing students to make choices that put eating regular meals and their education at odds. Director Geeta Gandbhir and executive producer Soledad O’Brien’s poignant film follows four college students as they navigate food insecurity in their attempt to change their lives for the better. Homelessness, abandonment and mental health issues loom as students are caught between educational institutions’ pursuit of profit during “the best time of their lives.”
