Welcome to our online edition of Friday Freeview. On the third Friday of each month, Maryland Public Television hosts a free screening of a program before it airs.
About the Film:
An exclusive sneak peek screening of the new POV film Pier Kids.
Filmed over the course of five years (2011-2016), the LQBTQ+ community are at the heart of Pier Kids, offering brief glimpses into many individuals' lives. While Pier Kids introduces many regulars to the Piers, the film provides intimate access to the lives and feelings of Casper, Desean, and Krystal. The sudden appearance and disappearance of new faces mimics the reality of The Piers, a place that offers something close enough to home, and is regarded as a ‘safe zone’ by the vulnerable young people who frequent the area. The film also illustrates the precarity of a heavy police presence in a community where sex work is the only means of survival for many.
