Description

Seattle, 1984. Taking their camera to the streets of what was
supposedly America’s most livable city, filmmaker Martin Bell,
photographer Mary EllenMark, and journalist Cheryl McCall set out to
tell the stories of those society had left behind: homeless and
runaway teenagers living on the city’s margins. Born from a Life
magazine exposé by Mark and McCall, Streetwise follows an
unforgettable group of at-risk children—including iron-willed
fourteen-year-old Tiny, who would become the project’s most haunting
and enduring face, along with the pugnacious yet resourceful Rat and
the affable drifter DeWayne—who, driven from their broken homes,
survive by hustling, panhandling, and dumpster diving. Granted
remarkable access to their world, the filmmakers craft a devastatingly
frank, nonjudgmental portrait of lost youth growing up far too soon in
a world that has failed them.
