LUCKY - A Documentary

LUCKY is a powerful documentary by journalist and film maker Laura Checkoway. Spanning five years on the streets of NYC, this intimate story of survival follows Lucky Torres, a homeless mother masked in tattoos who longs to rise from a life of darkness.

Lucky Torres grew up as an orphan in a system that made her feel like a nobody, but she has big dreams of becoming somebody. We meet her in her twenties, moving from shelter to shelter, struggling to provide for herself and her young son. With her sister Fantasy as her biggest ally, Lucky survives in a merciless city. We follow her daily grind, meeting various friends and girlfriends along the way. We learn about Lucky's contradictions and how she teeters on a tightrope between dreams and despair.

Join us for what is sure to be a life-altering experience as we witness a woman's struggle and harrowing search for stability.

Both film maker Laura Checkoway and the documentary star, Lucky will be available to answer questions following the screening. Running time 70 minutes. Check out the trailer here.
