Trust: Second Acts in Young Lives

Nancy Kelly

USA, Documentary, 2010
78 min, MiniDV, Color


Trust follows Marlin, a young Hondureña living in Chicago who has lived through some of the harshest cruelties imaginable: sexual abuse followed by severe depression. Propelled by her participation in the Albany Park Theater Project, a neighborhood teen theater company which makes original plays based on company members' stories, Marlin experiences a healthy movement away from identifying herself with those traumas in a documentary that is both uplifting and transformative.
