Short film Displacement Welcomed has its online premiere on November 3rd. It will also be available for streaming on Viewster from November 13th to the 27th as an official selection in the Viewster Online Film Fest.
Written and directed by Evan Kidd and starring April Vickery and Avery Hobbs, it is the story of a young woman returning home to deal with her father’s disappearance. Along the way, it's a homeless woman who helps her find what she truly seeks.
Here's what Evan Kidd had to say about the film:
"Displacement Welcomed was the summation of a lot of thoughts and ideas that I’d been carrying around for several years. More than anything I wanted to tell a story that wasn’t being told because it wasn’t common in reality. For as long as I can remember, there has been a homeless population in some way shape or form almost anywhere that I’ve ever been. Both in North Carolina and beyond; this population’s issues, needs and stories typically fall on deaf ears. It is easier for someone to walk by then to speak up. Talk to a homeless individual and learn their story. See things through their eyes. Just share in that genuine interaction. People always assume that all this population of people need is some money or food, but beyond that they crave more: a chance to exist without being immediately judged. I wanted to change things a bit and tell the story of an unlikely interaction that seems so foreign to what our two characters are accustomed to at first, but would soon become something these women cling to for that very reason."
